I'm back off of my holidays.
We've had a wonderful time over in Wales. We had a few good days of sunshine, & a couple of rainy ones. Luckily the 'big day' was a beautiful one. No, not a wedding, the 'big day' was on Tuesday 29th when we had our own little Olympic quest to climb Snowdon early in the morning to meet the Olympic torch up at the top. (Which might I add the torch was cheating by going up on the train!)We started our ascent at 6.30am, which in it's self was a major challenge (I'm not a morning person!) and after lots of Ooooo's and Awww's, photo's, and puffing and panting on my part we reached the top in a smidgen under 2 hours. A good little crowd had already started to gather, & the BBC news helicopter was buzzing around. We found ourselves a little spot round the side of the mountain, and settled in whilst we waited for the torch.
Initially we had wonderful views, but the clouds move fast up there, and started wrapping around us.
We waited for almost 2 hours, and then it finally arrived.
Carried up to the summit by the mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington.
A fantastic atmosphere, a once in a life time opportunity, & well worth that early morning rise!
We took the Miners track back down, stunning views.
A superb holiday.
I came back home to find out that my little pooch had cracked a bone in her foot, she apparently thought she'd try flying, and established dogs can't fly! Doh, I'm glad to say she seems to be making a full recovery now though.
I also came back to find out I got a top 3 spot over at Incy Wincy, Yipeeeee.
Thank you Incy Wincy, and thanks to everybody for your lovely comments whilst I've been away. I shall be catching up with all things blog at the weekend.
In the meantime Aud Sentiments have started a new fortnightly challenge, which is Any Sentiment for a Child's Birthday. For this challenge they are sponsored by the awesome Tiddly Inks. Get yourselves over there, and join in the fun.
We're almost there, so I'll wish you all a great weekend.
