As most people in the UK (and certainly anyone with primary school aged children) will know, today is Children in Need day.:
You may also know that Matt Baker has been riding a rickshaw from Edinburgh to London to raise money, and we were very excited to realise that his route took him 6 feet from our front door. He was leaving Cambridge at silly o'clock but he has an online GPS tracker that showed his progress and lo and behold he came cycling past at 6.15am!
Two (TWO!) cameras refused to take pictures but fortunately Mr DC's shiny phone did the job beautifully. If this video works you will not only see Matt and Pudsey in the dark, but will hear Tall Small calling out "He's here!", my panicked cries of "It's not working, it's not working!" and please note how calm my husband is in response. Living with the rest of us, believe me, he needs to be.
My children were beyond excited, and I have to admit I actually jumped up and down. I have a feeling we won't make it all the way through the broadcast tonight! Go, Matt, go!
