Everyone has a bucket list..... a list of things that they want to do...  well, attending wimbledon has always been on mine, so this year, thanks to my wonderful Mummy having all 3 of my darling children for the WHOLE day, Lee and I went off with the Echo Reader Travel to watch the tennis...
Was a bit of a shock to the system on a Sunday morning in that we had to be on the coach at 7.10am, so Mum was round at ours by 6.30am !!
 3 hours later we arrived at Wimbledon and we had tickets for No.1 court and would be watching the Youth boys and Youth girls finals and the Veteran's finals..
 Lots of places to get a drink and some food..
We sneaked into Centre Court - just to have a look and to be honest it wasn't as big as I thought it would be... saying that, a tennis court is a tennis court.... the Royal Box looked impressive though..  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in attendance as were the Beckhams, but did we manage to see anyone, no :(

A cuppa always goes down well, no matter where you are :)

 The boys final was great, two names to look out for in a couple of years I think - Noah Rubin won!

The girls final wasn't quite so interesting and I hate all the grunting one of the girls made, but it was a good match and Jelena Ostapenko won.

The veterans doubles game was quite funny as when they missed the ball, one of the players kept holding his back and pretending to be an old man!

We didn't get back until 10pm, so it was a really long day, for both lee and I and Mum.  The kids however had had a great day as they got to eat chocolate, sweets and game all day.  Gotta love time with Nannie!
