The Mens Olympic Road Race was doing 9 loops of Box Hill down the road from us today (Hubby cycles there most weekends) so we popped along to see if we could catch a glimpse. Managed to park in a local farmer's field (at a smallish cost) and walked to the course. It was packed either side of the road. The sun was blazing down and we waited in anticipation. Finally they came by and WHOOSH - How Fast!!! My hubby managed to get this great shot of our lads who were really battleing against the odds at the front of the peloton. We managed to get home to see the end on the TV. So we have seen the Queen at the Derby, the Olympic Torch at Wray Common near Redhill and now the Mens Road Race. What a great year!
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
