Wednesday 30 January 2013

This month was special for my home town of Newbury, as on 11th July, the 2012 London Olympic torch was to make its way through London Road, Northbrook Street, Market Place and Bear Lane on its way to Winchester. I didn't do too this month as live coverage of the Tour De France was on and I didn't want to miss a minute of it, (ok I know I'm sad). A couple of photos I took were from the T.V on a couple of wonderful shots I saw being beam back from the lovely countryside of France. Also this month it was my daughters 19th birthday, how time flies.
