Well, you have to embarrass your kids don't you. With me is the mum of the two princess.
By 2.00, when we set off, the sun had come out and the weather remained fab. As I was walking the route, collecting money and greeting friends, I felt really lucky: to be a member of such a great village (largest in England!) and to have so many friends there cheering us all on.
It really was a great day, and hopefully we raised lots of money for local good causes. The girls have next weekend off and then we start going to all the local carnivals, as visiting courts and being in their parades. I can't wait!
