The Day The Olympic Torch Came To My Town







It passed the end of my road and we went to take our part in local history.


We waited for about 45 minutes and it was all over in a flash.

I tried several times to get a snapshot but a policeman/little boy with flag/over-excited pensioner just kept getting in the way.

I am afraid this blurred effort with the torch chopped off is the best shot I could get.




I wore: Shoes: Clarks Skirt & Denim Shirt - from a shop in Barcelona Top - Primark

  3. What fun the countrywide tour of the Olympic Torch is giving us all. (Trying not to be cynical re the apparent stranglehold of the official sponsors.) BTW you look younger every time you blog these days. Let us in to your secret please! Cx
