I realise that this is a craft blog but being such a big fan of F1. My love for F1 has been for years and my favorite race is Monte Carlo, I have been to Monte Carlo but not when a race was on, something I would love to do is to go back to Monte Carlo and also to go and see a F1 race. TV is fine but you don't get the excitement and atmosphere of a race live.
I can't let today go by without writing a small piece about our local boy Jensen Button.
Jensen has been in Frome today, our local boy has been given the freedom of the town and a bridge will be named after him. The presentation was made outside the Cheese and Grain building, in the cattle market car park, and the sun was shinning.
Jensen grow up in Frome and went to school in Frome, he is known as the Frome Flyer and there is a pub on the by pass named after him, and the industrial estate which has grown up around the pub has its roads all named after Jensen.
Last year the town celebrated when he became world champion 2009 I can only hope that he will win the championship again this year.
I hope you enjoyed reading my blog today, my next blog will be on craft don't worry I realise you have come to see craft but today is a big day in Frome, and I look forward to seeing you again on my blog
