It was very exciting to see the Olympic torch pass through our village on Sunday morning. I think the entire population was outside lining the route – and quite a few visitors from other (less lucky!) villages too. Everyone got into the spirit of things, waving flags and cheering – even the pirate from outside the old Fish and Chip shop was dressed in patriotic style! In the end it was all over too quickly – the torch flashed past and was gone ….
… so we all went inside for a nice (very British) cup of tea. For, as it says on my cushion pattern for the June issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine … “Tea Revives You” and after all that cheering we needed plenty of reviving!
