Olympic Fever

I think every one here would agree that the whole country was gripped by Olympic fever.  We certainly were.  The boys took a trip down to the east end and had a great time watching the athletics. They were  completely wowed by the size of the stadium, and the noise of every one cheering Mo Farah on to win.  Way to go Mo. It's a real rarity these days to get a picture of my little darlings together but here they are feeling the heat of the Olympic flames some 20 metres away from their seats.  A day they will always remember
