Yes today was Walsall and Wolverhampton's (to name but a few) turn to have the Olympic torch pass through.
And seeing as hubby also has a fun day at work I went in with him.
(It did mean I also got lots of my own work done too, so much for a day off eh!)
The torch was running a little late but we picked a spot and waited, after all I won't get to see it again in my life time I doubt.
Walsall was absolutely packed and had a great feel to it with strangers all having a laugh and a joke together.
(Even sharing cake too)
Eventually the torch arrived and was lit for the waiting runner;
And before you knew it had passed us by;
The streamer cannons were great touch.
After all the excitement I am now off to get ready for a wedding reception of one of my dear friends.
