Guess who got to hold the Olympic torch yesterday?

Hello and welcome to Creative Mondays hosted by Clairejustineoxox and Judyh-jsThoughts where you can link up all your creative post each week…. what have you all been up to this week?

Wow it’s been a busy busy week with the Olympic torch coming through our town on Thursday and yesterday we were even lucky enough to get a hold of the torch at the Mansfield fun run.

3 out of 4 of my kids ran the fun run my oldest just ran a bit with his little sister to help her around as he won it 2 years ago.My 15 year old won it  so I can’t wait till Wednesday to see if he got his picture in the local papers.

This week I’m sharing some pictures of the Mansfield fun run..

Want to join in …

    I had no idea you were a Mansfield lady, how odd! I grew up in neighbouring Sutton-in-Ashfield, and most of my remaining family live in Mansfield still, including my dad , cousins and various Aunts and Uncles. I'm now the odd renegade member of the family who chose to live in't'smoke, down here in London. Coming up to Mansfield in mid August to visit me dad. Ey up duck!

    Awesome pictures Clairejustine! Love them! It is great that you all got to hold the torch. Congratulations to your son for winning the fun run. I am sorry that I missed being a part of Creative Monday due to internet problems. However I will add a link. By the way, our Olympics trials helped me get through the time without my internet!:) I am a big sports fan. Have a wonderful week.
