so yesterday (Tuesday) I went to this lovely little tennis tournament down the road. It’s held every year and all the major seeds from all over the world compete on the only grand slam grass courts.
I came back from Josh’s house a day early after building his computer in record time. It was all up and running in a matter of hours, even had time to watch the new Top Gear on TV.
On Tuesday me and mum got up at 6:30am to get in the queue for Wimbledon. We were numbers 3257 and 3258 in the queue. It was all very organised and time just flew by. Before you know it it was time for 2nd breakfasts and then eleven-zies. We got in to the first court at about 11am, court 3, to watch Jankovic play. It was a great match, where the crowd were rooting for the underdog (because that’s what we British do best, see Hennman).
Round 2 was over on court 4, Keothavong (or sumin’) losing. Such a shame to see a Brit out in the first round, but again the crowd we’re supportive right till the end.
Murray Mound was crazy busy. But me and mum (being the jammy sods we are) managed to secure ourselves some seats on a bench!= near the front of the hill, primetime spot! We even saw some woman from ESPN interviewing people.
Why can’t Murray just win comfortably. I was in no doubt that he could do it, but it wouldn’t hurt for him to show it every once in a while. Joined in with all the cheering, had strawberries and Rosé, all very civilised. Victoria even managed to come down and join us, for free!
All in all it was a fantastic day, only made better by getting to spend it with my mum who I don’t get to see a lot these days!
The rest of the week will be quite quite in comparison to recent days, catching up on things and sorting out this bank mess…
Then I kick off the weekend with a bang on Friday with Derren Brown Live (absolutely cannot wait!) then off to see my sis on Saturday for a few days. Can’t believe it’s been over 2 months since I last saw you!
