It’s not often that you get something for free these days. So it was a pleasant surprise to pop into Asda the other day, and encounter the ‘Cadbury Experience’. 

To get into the Olympic spirit, they were offering shoppers free face painting, and a chance to get their pic superimposed either on the running track, or with the Stadium in the background. 

Well. Far be it from me to pass up an opportunity to get Olympicky (not an actual word). So here are the girls, competing in the London 2012 games…

pre-race preparations
nerves must be setting in now
nearly time to race
on your marks… get set… 
GO!!!! *give lil sis a little nudge* go!!!

Now I know just how Jessica Ennis’ Mum feels…

We weren’t paid to do this, or bribed with chocolate (I wish) we just came across this the other day and thought it was pretty darn cool.

    Sometimes corporate sponsors get it right, this looks like one of those occasions. Great fun
