Any second now!!!!!
Yes, it was a long wait… But exciting. And we enjoyed the show. After all, this is the 3rd most watched sporting event in the world and it was passing right by the end of our road. Not bad. Vive le Tour!
And the day before they’d ridden past my Mum and Dad’s house in York. What are the chances of that? It’s like they were laying it on specially for us. So we had to go bananas!
Are they here yet Dad? Not quite lass, be patient, it’ll be soon…
Yorkshire looked great. Epping did too. Yellow everywhere, garlic, onions and tricolours livening up the High Street. We love our cliches.
Dad, when will they be here? Soon, soon.
And all of a sudden, they were!
It brought the francophile out in me, plus the Yorkshire & Essex pride. They went past in about 12 seconds, but it was great!
Was that it then, Dad? Aye, indeed. Time for a beer. Well I am a Yorkshireman…
Love it, when’s the next celebration?
(Apologies for the number of exclamation marks in this post. It just had to be that way!)
