Yesterday the Olympic torch came very close to our village, but our eldest boy and daddy were on a school trip to the seaside, and my second son had a school taster session, so none of us got to watch the torch passing by. Today the school agreed that we could see the torch in the morning at another location, so after a mad dash to nursery to drop our youngest son off, we took the boys and baby on a chase……. it was a close thing but we managed to get to the location JUST as the torch was passing. Great for us, but slightly underwhelming for the boys! No time to get my camera out, so here is the post event shot as people prepare to leave.
