Hi!! So I have got some news... While you are reading this, I will be back at Olympic Park to watch the Cycling!! Haha, we must be completely mad!! We just got back Saturday night and we are back on Tuesday morning!! Any way you will hear about what happens tomorrow in a different post, for now I will be telling you about Saturday!!
So the Show Jumping was the reason we were going to the Olympics in the first place, as Robert had got me them for Christmas last year, as I absolutely adore horses and riding! I was super excited to go and see people who I had watched on telly to see them in the flesh and to see these absolutely first class horses jumping amazing jumps! This event was at Greenwich Park, which is South London, so we had to get a couple of trains to get there. Greenwich is a beautiful place, which we weren't expecting and the park is just amazing, despite the cloudy weather and all the Olympic barriers and what not! I must have taken about 300 photos of just the horses jumping.... yup it was awesome! Now obviously I'm not going to show you all of them, but I will show you a few, just cause its my blog and hey on here is what I love!! Hehe, also the course was amazing! Some tight corners and some flat out gallops in this course, quite complicated and also very high!
Ok so that seems like a nice amount of photos! Hehe I could just add more and more because I think they all look amazing! I just think horse are amazing creatures, when you watch it, you can see how the relationship between the horse and rider works. Like at one point you could see the rider was nervous and the horse hesitated and didn't jump the jump because he knew the rider wasn't sure! It was just an amazing experience!! Oh and also our British team won Gold today!! Woohoo!!
Hmm... Strange look on my face here! I promise I was enjoying it!! Hehe, even if it was rainy and windy!

Any way after the show jumping, we were mad and headed back to Westfield shopping centre, because I never got to have a look around the day before! We went up to the top floor and found Pinkberry!!!! I have heard so much about this through FleurDeForce and her videos, so I knew I had to try it! Here was my creation:
It was super yummy!! Even Robert liked his chocolate one! He thought it was ice cream, hehe!!! Then I spotted some thing very exciting across from Pinkberry.... Gilly Hicks!!! Ahhhhhhh, I ate my yoghurt extremely fast just so I could get over and into the shop! Now I love Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch, so to see another sister store, I was like I must go in!!! I did buy a few things so keep an eye out for a little haul!! Teehee!
Then we went down to see the Liberty store, which just has the most beautiful scarves!!! I so love my scarves, but as much as I do I will not be paying £95 for one! Teehee, also love the guards outside the shop!! Its actually really tiny! I thought it would have been a bigger store than that seeing as the main Liberty is so huge!!
We had a brilliant day and left Westfield to go back to the hotel and pick up our bags and went back to Luton to get the car!! We got home just after 12am, which was a fast drive all the way back up to Glasgow! We had an amazing holiday and it was well worth all the craziness of trying to get tickets! I just cannot believe that when you read this I will have been to another event! I hope we will have got another gold!! Hehe!
Love, Jen x
