Not saying I’m rubbish or anything but it’s taken me so long to write this post that the Wimbledon tournament has now finished!! Never mind…

Last weekend saw my first ever visit to Wimbledon. (Actually that will be the weekend before last now)…
I don’t just mean the train station, or scouring the Common for Wombles either. I mean the All England Tennis Club, hosts of the Grand Slam tennis tournament.
At the ripe old age of 41 I had never once been to see this world famous event and so I suppose I thought it was time.
Hence I found myself sat in the Centre Court on Saturday, watching Serena Williams, David Ferrer and Andy Murray bat a ball about for victory.
|Serena Williams - she wore the same pants throughout the tournament!|
I’m no tennis expert or even what you might consider a huge fan, but I certainly recognise that what I was watching was of a considerably higher class than anything I’d ever seen before.
These people showed exactly how the game should be played.
We were completely blown away by the skill shown.
Also, we were blown away by the Pimms.
Jo decided that the fruit in the bottom counted towards her ‘5 a day’ and so proceeded to have as many as she could – all in the interests of her health, you understand. I attempted to keep up as best that I could.
But that woman really loves fruit!

So we enjoyed the action and because I am not entirely without contacts, we also enjoyed some free sandwiches. And cake. And strawberries. And more Pimms. I do have some very good contacts.
All in all we had a really nice day.
The best thing about it?
We didn’t take the kids with us.
Am I evil?
Am I the worst parent ever?
But we really did have a nice day. One thing is still very much clear and that is that I really do enjoy hanging out with my wife.
She really is very lovely.
Especially after seven glasses of Pimms….
|Fruit is good for you, hic|
