This was a relief, because by that point I was pretty keyed up at the thought of meeting her and from the whirlwind of my day – the long flight, the tour of the P&G Family home, the sheer Olympic energy and excitement in the air everywhere, all the people saying “aboot”… (just joshing ya, Canada!).
