I have never been to Wimbledon. Never ever. I’m the one on the sofa, yelling at the telly, thinking WHY DIDN’T I GO TO WIMBLEDON?
But this all changed on Saturday, when the gorgeous people at Christy, an official Wimbledon sponsor and partner (and who supply all of the towels for the whole tournament – read on to see how you can win one!) scooped up me, Jeska from Lobster and Swan, Torie Jayne and Gemma Tomlinson and whisked us Wombles off to Wimbles.. and what a very VERY exciting day it turned out to be…
You may not remember, but last Saturday was a total wash out in London. We were all there in our strawberries and Pimm’s inspired Summer dresses and hiding from the torrential rain under umbrellas by Southfields Station.. keeping our eyes peeled for canoes.. but luckily for us, when we got to Wimbledon, we were on Centre Court with a lovely rainproof roof to shield us from the thunderstorms. Hip pip!
First things, first – no one told me that David Beckham would be there?! (In fairness, I doubt anyone had told him that I would be there either. Evens Stevens) Well he was, along with members of the British Armed Forces and a host of other sporting stars.. can you spot Mummy Murray too?
We saw three matches – Nadal/Kukushkin, Sharapova/Riske and Federer/Giraldo – you can see the scores below..
Strawberries and Cream were flying, Pimm’s was flowing, (but sadly not for me as I’d only had my wisdom tooth out on the previous Monday and I was on boring antibiotics. Hmph) and we ooooohed and aaaaaahed our way through all the matches…
I had an absolute ball and really felt like I’d witnessed a little slice of history. A huge thanks to the sweet, kind, thoughtful and hilarious (Honey – you need your own show) girls from Christy for the completely wonderful day.. and also to the three other bloggers, who were gorgeously delightful rays of sunshine and made me giggle all day long.
I do so love you Wimbles. You make me all giddy. (Although, that may have been the antibiotics.)
Until next year!
