I have lots and lots of other posts to write (scary amounts n fact, it's all backing up), so in the meantime let me show you pictures from the Olympiad.
Photos I took of the action look identical to all the other years, so I won't repeat myself with too many of those. Instead I will show you my outfit since really, that's what most people want to see on this 'ere blog, right?
Here is a photo by me. I can't remember who took it for me!
Dress: La Bonita from Miss Bamboo
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
The Vintage Mafia were planning to wear the Heyday PinaFleur as seen in my last post but, due to it's marginal shortness, we had to find a last-minute alternative. La Bonita was perfect and the lovely Miss Bamboo rushed them to us after we bought them a few days before the event. Sterling customer service Miss B!

Bethan is, as you may or may not know, the events manager for the Chap. So she was on duty all day, organising the crap out of everything perfectly. We had some duties as a threesome though, namely scoring the Well Dressage round. Here we are in more photos by Hanson.
Some of us were more generous than others
Bribery with lollipops is how Edward Marlowe received 'all the points' for his round
Jeni was used as a prop - as captured by The Vintage News
Jeni and I also took part as Diners in a round of Breadbasketball, which I took very seriously.

...and we were interviewd by Vintage News, where our in-jokes made poor Sadie crack up a bit.
I also took part in a cockney walkabout in tribute to the late Chap writer Nathaniel Slipper.
I shall leave you for now with this final stunning photo of Jeni and I sharing a moment at the Breadbasketball table. This is probably the most accurate representation of my face on a typical day. Lovely.
Back with a report on What Katie Did's new loungewear, my King's Ginger August adventure, a book review and probably more that I have forgotten.
Have a good day, readers!
