In the short time period between getting home and going out again to the football, I had such a dilemma about what to wear... having never been to a footy match before, but opted for a very blue ensemble with these Reiss shorts that I hadn't worn yet, and a 1960s vintage top. I had to wear the little scarf because I'm getting a sore throat from all the paint fumes in the house.

We had a lovely time before hand soaking up the atmosphere, with 28,828 spectators the match was almost a sell out, and the majority of the crowd were supporting team GB.
Even the police officers were in the spirit of things.
We were playing Canada (they won).
And flags were passed up into the crowd to pass across them
I even got rather patriotic myself

The light was lovely as we left, and even though we lost, there was still a general feeling of happiness amongst the crowd.
I enjoyed my first football match, and I enjoyed getting to see an Olympic event in my hometown even more.
