It’s finally here – Get ready to support TEAM GB

I have Olympic fever, I am just so excited about watching the Opening Ceremony and finding out who exactly will light the Olympic torch (as I write the word is that the bookies have closed all bets on it being Sir Roger Bannister…). This is just such a historic occasion – it has taken 64 years for the Olympics to make their way back to the UK, and so probably won’t happen again in my lifetime.

That’s why today’s shopping post could only be dedicated to all things Team GB, and to those offering special discounts and savings in celebration. There are some items with a decidedly Union Jack feel, whilst others speak of sport, and some have frankly nothing to do with sports or union jacks, but offer celebratory savings to good to ignore.
