This young man is incredible , Alex I knew your mother, I was Nicholas and Ashley's nanny for two years. Your Mom was incredible , I learned some of the most valuable skills of mothering and organizing. I went on to have my own daughter and not working for your family. Your Mom and I kept in touch but as the years passed we lost touch. I loved your sister and treated her as my own . Many good memories. I know your Mom is very proud of you !

Good luck. I hope you can make it through immigration at Heathrow and actually manage to get on a tube train that will take you to the site in East London. However, they may not have a bed for you because far more athletes and coaches are coming to London than they'd planned for.

London has the dubious distinction of moving over one million people a day around the City, absolute gridlock, or should I say tube lock, Glad I can watch the Olympics on TV, and visit the City next year!!!!
