After a magnificent two weeks, the London 2012 Olympics finishes tomorrow.
And Team GB, my home team - THE home team - has done well.
28 gold medals, 15 silver, and 19 bronze. A total haul of 62. Our best ever!
This is so good, in fact, that the Royal Mail has painted a number of its iconic red mail boxes gold, to celebrate a local athlete who has won a gold medal. There's several nearby, including one in Bedford to mark Etienne Stott’s Olympic victory with Tim Baillie in the Men’s Canoe Double.
I hunted this one down today, and tested how strong it was.
Pretty damned heroic, eh? No, not me, the mail box!
Congratulations to Team GB!
Now, can I have the stepladder back, please?
