6am and with sunlight streaming through the bedroom window (a novelty in itself) I quickly threw on some clothes and headed out into the early morning sunshine to catch a glimpse of the Olympic torch!
|Early morning, Chalk Farm|
|Union Jacks everywhere|
Finally there was a flicker of a flame through the crowd and the torch appeared. The crowd cheered madly, the torch passed by and it was all over. Suddenly thousands of people converged on to the road and headed home for breakfast.
It was a brilliant moment and one I’ll always remember. Hurray for London, I couldn’t have chosen a better year for my leap of faith!
