Overall medal table
Congratulations to Team GB on their excellent performance in the Olympics. Made all the better by the fact that Great Britain finished 5 gold medals ahead of Australia. It makes living down under a lot sweeter than it already was.

This weekend I’m heading to V Festival in Chelmsford with a few friends to see Radiohead, Morrissey, Beck Morrissey, Editors, We Are Scientists, Gomez, The Dandy Warhols and a load more besides. Then on Tuesday I’m heading back down to Newquay with some friends for some more surfing until the Saturday when I’ll be heading back in time for the Sunday of Reading Festival. Where I will finally get to see Pearl Jam play live.
