Good news hidden

I spent a good hour on Wednesday night trying to book rail tickets for 3 of the 4 Olympics events we are attending.  The site is pretty awful, which is sad because there is a flexible and very clever site just under the surface.  Also, there are some great deals to be had.
It's such poor PR!  The train companies are selling cheap rail tickets for those with Olympics events to attend - they are not even charging a peak rate in the week.  They've been very clever and said, it you book in advance, you get a massive discount but you cant travel on just any train - which means that commuters still have a chance to get a train free of people dressed in team GB colours.
Our London office had a visit from Transport For London who basically said, if you think London is busy some days, the Olympics will be many multiples of that!  So, staff who can work from home are being encouraged to do so.  I wonder how many companies haven't quite figured this out?
London is going to be bonkers... in a good way though.
In other Olympics news, we have the flame going past on Sunday - well, just up the road in the next town.  I hope to see if, but we have a BBQ on Saturday, so I may not be up to it!
