Olympic Torch Relay

With just a few days to go until the Olympic Opening Ceremony, it seems that summer is finally here and so to is Olympic fever! As someone who is definitely in the 'yay' rather than the 'nay' camp for London 2012, I couldn't resist the opportunity to see the Olympic torch on its journey through Haringey to Alexandra Palace. Personally I believe the Olympics to be a great opportunity for Britain, and I am looking forward to attending some of the sporting events and celebrations over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy these images of the Olympic torch relay as much as I enjoyed attending the event today.

Escape to the Country (Starring Elphie)

I decided that it was time to briefly leave the noise and general chaos of my London life behind and seek some solace and relaxation in the Hertfordshire countryside. So with Elphie the Dog as my tour guide, I spent a peaceful Saturday afternoon exploring and photographing the sights of Quickswood.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please pop by again soon :-)

It’s that time of year again, so get the Pimm’s and the strawberries & cream ready as Wimbledon is in full swing! 21 years ago I first dreamed of making it to the Centre Court and now I have finally been there!! Ok, so I had planned to be playing on the court rather than watching from the stands… but it was still a great experience! ;-) I had such a good time attending the tournament last week that I thought I’d share some photos

 Brollies at the ready

 Aorangi Terrace aka Henman Hill/Murray Mound 

 Play is suspended :-(

 Yes, of course I got lost!

 The covers are off!
