Vinnie and Auntie Jan are now firmly ensconced in their London digs and finally living the dream that they have been working so robustly towards for so many years ….Vinnie says his heart hasn’t stopped pounding yet …….
…… and that just the smell of the chlorine from the
swimming pool Aquatics Centre makes him want to sing Rule Britannia and Jerusalem with a strong, manly, baritone voice, full of overwhelming jingoistic pride and fervour.
However there is still much to do before the Opening Ceremony … like making sure that he has enough loose coins in his pockets each day, just in case any of the swimmers need some change to get a hot chocolate and a bag of crisps from the vending machines on their way out. It just sounds soooooo romantic and exciting!
