Yesterday in Basildon we went to see the torch bearer, Holly Worthington and the Olympic Flame.
There were hundreds of people there but we managed to get a good kerb side view and doesn't she look fantastic?
I had to have a flag, yes there were men there selling them, but you can't go to something like this without one!
Wonderful to see so many people shouting and waving their flags too!
A day to remember.
We couldn't get tickets for the Olympics but we did for the Para-Olympics.
We have tickets for the swimming, cycling, athletics with medal ceremonies and the closing ceremony.
So we were delighted to get them.. it is a once in a lifetime experience!
Yesterday was an amazing day and we aren't even there yet!
