    Opening ceremony has had some lovely music in it tonight
    Song from handel anyone know what is called? Sung by the soprano in a gold dress!

    I ended up switching over to watch Laur abeat Kim. Its a shame they were on at the same time as the opening ceremony.

    Some incredible scenes at the Paralympic opening ceremony! A rather more 'classical' event and it was nice that the athletes came in ahead of most of the 'entertainment' so they were part of it all.

    I liked that they've used the same flame cauldron as for the main Olympics and the Beverley Knight rendition of "I am what I am" was very appropriate.

    London doing everyone proud again!

    We have won 7 medals today already, 3 in the pool which levels with what we achieved in the main Olympics including a gold.

    We watched the opening ceremony this morning. So nice. I had goosebumps for most of it.

    I do hope they repeat it after they finish. I missed the last half as I switched over to watch Laura beat Kim.

    They had this massive sculpture of a pregnant woman with no hands or legs. Very poignant. Based on an artist. Wonder if her baby was fully formed.

    And I loved the song "I am what I am" at the end.

    Wowee that's good. We got a gold on the first day (yesterday) and a silver and I was so chuffed seeing as we only got one gold through the Olympics and that was on day 8.
