I've now received my invitation to collect my uniform and have been sent my volunteering shifts for the Olympic Games. As I wrote the dates in my diary it suddenly became tangible - I'll be there. My shifts include the opening and closing ceremonies and a few days before and after too.

Just 3 days after I join my friends to welcome the Olympic Torch as it comes through Petersfield, I'll be at the Olympic Park helping to deliver the greatest show on earth.  It's very exciting - a little scary but most of all a fabulous opportunity and an experience I'm sure the rest of the Games Makers and I will never forget.

Looking forward to our next training session which will be held in the Main Media Centre at the Olympic Park when we'll have the chance to test out the facilities as well as ourselves.
