good shot, bad luck and hell are the five basic words to be used in a game of tennis, though these, of course, can be slightly amplified..

i went to wimbledon yesterday with lisa…..

we set off with umbrellas and lisa had baked some gluten free muffins…

other snacks were taken…

we got glorious weather…

and we both just loved being there…

some tickets to centre court would also have been nice…

in the meantime we got positioned on the hill in the sun…

in a private area…

and enjoyed the game on centre court on the large screen..

a dragon fly landed on my thigh and it was so beautiful…

lisa took a picture and it’s an omen of good luck…

we took turn’s checking the line for resale of tickets for centre court and court one that was not moving and people had been there since 10a.m….

anna wintour was on the large screen…and pippa middleton who got lots of wolf whistles!!!

finally we got some tickets for court 1…

or wait for centre court…

decisions???

we were trying to work out which game would last longer…

nadal???? or andy murray????…

we turned down court 1..

and waited for over half and hour for centre court tickets…

we raced to centre court…

got in to see andy murray for ten minutes and win the game…

meanwhile on court 1…

nadal was still going…

we were gutted!!!!

we chose the court, not the player…

the thing and not the person…

lesson learnt!!!!

we both don’t even like andy murray!!!

so we raced back to court 1…

as there was a boring mens double match that followed on centre court…no stars…

and the nadal game just ended…

lisa scored some tickets for us and we went to court 1 and watched a women’s double match which was much more fun…

all the while realizing that we had missed and hour and half of seeing nadal do his magic in the flesh..

still that didn’t ruin the best day!!!!
