Fabulous to see that three of our local women will be taking part in the semi-final of the Curling on Wednesday.
Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton are flying the Border flag high and proud and all the best to them. It promises to be edge of the seat stuff, but they now definitely play for a medal, so here's hoping.
While I was fretting over the fate of our teams, Tamara took it upon herself to actually venture in to the Olympic Park in order to bring you a sense of the atmosphere inside the Games themselves.
Here's what she thought:
So, perhaps their are some problems after all. The hotels are not all as bad as the ones you may have seen on TV or social media. Mine is really nice and a lot less expensive than some of the ones where people seem to be staring forlornly at missing curtain rails while washing their hands in yellow tap water.
The trains to the stadiums are free and frequent and every day expenses like food and drinks are cheap for a city hosting such a big event.
I hope to explore the park myself once the Curling is finished, but right now it's all about those shiny stones for me.
Tomorrow I'll be cheering on David Murdoch, in the men's play off against Norway, from the Media Centre. I'll be cheering silently in my head, as they don't approve of cheering in press boxes, some of the people in them can get quite sniffy about it. Good luck anyway David.
Oh, If you think that I am doing ok for myself out here, check out Border Bear. They've bought him a hat now, I hat I tell you. His official minder, Nadia, is nicknamed 'Sparrow', which explains the sign. Apparently he missed her, he's never said he misses me, but hardship makes a man, doesn't it.
