The Olympic opening ceremony in tweets

Last night whilst watching the Olympics something had a grip of me from the moment it started, it was like I was drunk on Britain. I really wasn't fussed about the Olympics, I know it's fantastic that we got picked as the host country and that so much hard work had gone into it but I just wasn't that interested. I don't know if it's because I'm not overly into watching sports but I wasn't planning on watching anything not even the opening ceremony. Of course my curiosity got the best of me and along with the rest of the UK, I switched it on. From the moment it started I was gripped, Danny Boyle had really truly done a amazing job. I had never felt so patriotic before, ok I was a little patriotic when watching the Queen's Jubilee shindig but last night had me wanting to stick a Union flag on a pole in my front garden. Gosh, the nostalgia of the maypole dancing had me thinking back to my childhood - see I'm not that young. Anyway I thought I would share my Olympic tweets timeline with you to show you exactly how I felt about the opening ceremony, scroll right to the bottom and work your way up to read them in order. I bowed out at about 11.15pm as I just couldn't keep my eyes open anymore! Did you manage to watch it all?
