Today (even though it is Wordless Wednesday I am going to do a Pawsomely Big Blog post as I've not been posting for more than a week. Can you guess what's happening in this photo? It is me and Judith waiting for the Olympic Torch!! The torch was coming through Monk Fryston the next village to ours and we went to say hello to the torch bearers and cheer them on their way. Here are some of the pictures from the day:
The flags were flying to represent each of the nations which have hosted Olympic Games in the past
There were signs to show the games that will take place in the Olympics
And lots of Union Jack flags - it was like the Queen's Jubilee all over again!
There was singing
and bands making a loud noise :-(
There were strange people on little bicycles
and golden girls
and BACON BUTTIES!!!
But suddenly the police bikers were coming with their lights flashing
Let me see, let me see!
Here she comes with the torch!
Oh I think she's waving at me!
This torchbearer is Ashpal Bhogal from Leeds in Yorkshire and she is only 17 years old and is the first British Sikh/Asian hockey player to be selected in any of the English Women's Hockey international programmes - she has won lots of awards in that sport.
Well that was a lovely morning...and I will tell you more about what happened that day in another post but it wasn't only hello and goodbye to the Olympic torch...because today I have had to say goodbye to my little boy Merlin who has gone to a wonderful new home in Northumberland.
Wishing you a very happy life with your new forever family Merlin xx
