Well it finally happened!
The Olympic torch relay finally came to us today bringing with it a little bit of
colour to an otherwise bleak and very grey day. The route actually came right
past our front door.
I was lucky enough to get my photo taken with one of the torch bearers while
he waited for the other guy who was actually carrying the flame to catch up!
There was a small convoy of vehicles with entertainment on board to keep the crowds
in good spirits too. As well as a Police escort to clear the way.
