Vinnie has sent us a few pictures of his final romantic Olympic Day to peruse…. whilst he begins his preparations for his even more wonderful Paralympic Days….He said that after all the 10km Marathon Swim Events had finished in Hyde Park …….
There was a mahoooosive “Thank You/Wrap” party for all the volunteers who had worked in Hyde Park … like Auntie Jan and his good self. He said that there was a most sufficient finger buffet, drinks of every denomination and as many Cadbury mini chocolates as you could put in your mouth, pockets, bags and anywhere else you could erm …….
shove place them ……
…… and when his name was called out as a winner of keyring of an exclusive Olympic type nature he said that everyone cheered and clapped for him, which made him blush with pride that everyone knew who he was!
There were also Thank You Certificates akimbo for everyone …. Vinnie said that he was going to frame his and put it in pride of place on the already festooned mantelpiece as soon as he gets home “for real” after the Paralympics.Vinnie also admitted that although he doesn’t usually imbibe, especially when on duty, as it was “A Wrap” he let his hair down just this once and partook of one of the aforementioned drinks of all denominations! Well done, Bottoms Up, Cheers and Bon Santé Vinnie, you earned it!
