It isn't every day you can say you saw someone you know
win a gold medal,
But that is what Mr T and I along with other members of my family did today.
Last October my nephews best man at his wedding was his
screamed Cheered him to victory
at Eton Dorney
and it was fantastic.
We had known for sometime that he was in with a good chance of getting a medal
which was why we applied for the tickets in the first place
and we are oh so glad we did.
We had an early start but it is a beautiful setting.
The start line.
The result confirmed on the big screen.
The down sides of the day--
I've lost my voice from all the cheering
I have Panda eyes were I've been wearing
sunglasses all day.
I think I can live with both.
It was a full house all along the short course.
A party atmosphere with bands and dancers
after it had all finished for both
the wonderful games makers.
Having been to 3 events during the last 2 weeks
I have to say how fantastic these volunteers have been
with smiles and waves for hours on end and have
helped make the atmosphere at these events absolutely amazing.
And one for Helen- the undomesticated Scientist-
the bag she sent me in the Best of British Swap.
We had made a 2 day trip out of the occasion
so next time will be our day in Windsor.
