Vinnie was sooooo mahooooosively excited yesterday when he e-mailed us because when he got to “Workforce Check” in the morning he found he had got his Reward and Recognition Card, which means that whenever he reports for a shift he will receive a surprise gift/reward, which is almost just too Olymptasically romantic to take in!
Each time he logs in Vinnie should get a stamp, but Vinnie's was all the more special because someone had taken the time not to stamp his card, but to draw a smiley face on it instead……
His first reward was his very own Games Maker Journal, somewhere to record all his memorable memories of his journey as a Games Maker of an London 2012 Olympic type nature, just how brilliant is that? What a treasure, Vinnie said that he couldn’t stop looking at it or stroking it to make sure it was real!
Vinnie says that he is trying to get used to his feelings of being totally overwhelmed and goosebumpy, but every day seems to bring something that takes his breath away …. and fills him with even more emotion.
After their shift Vinnie and Auntie Jan like to stroll through the Olympic Village to drink up the atmosphere and pinch themselves …. whilst doing this they have found an exclusive shop of a merchandise type nature that is only available in the village ….. both Vinnie and Auntie Jan would like to purchase of it copiously, but sense and sensibility have to step in after a time …. However, Vinnie as enquired on our behalf as to whether a soundtrack of Paul McCartney’s performance will be available either to download or on CD …. as he said he thinks that it would be the ultimate souvenir that he could bring us back from the Olympiad ….. what he he like? …. We are HOPING against HOPE that he is only joshing !!!!
