Saturday morning saw the rare miracle of me actually getting out of bed before hubby and stumbling downstairs in a sleepy stupor to plop myself on the couch with a cup of tea and an imaginary union jack in hand. Yep, the time difference meant that I watched the Olympic opening ceremony at 5am and I must admit half way through I did have to pinch myself to check that I hadn't fallen asleep again and was dreaming that Mary Poppins was flying in to vanquish the Harry Potter guy.
Not only did Queenie have the best entrance of the night she also by far had the best hat. Not at all your typical Queen hat I loved how soft she looked (her outfit at least, her face was a little harsher than usual) and the subtle flower detailing at the side.
Team Costa Rica
Team Marshal Islands
Team Puerto Rico
As much as the fashions of the teams has been analysed over the last few days I must admit that I by far prefer the countries wearing national dress.
Who knows, if Scotland votes for independence in 2014 maybe one day we will see Olympic Team Scotland marching proudly in kilts with Alexander McQueen style Glengarry hats.
and we all know how that story ends :)
