Last Wednesday, I managed to go to Wimbledon, and sit on Centre Court thanks to an old tennis mad school friend.

Last year, Rob followed the tennis around the world, going to Davis Cup matches, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Which is quite a feat really!

This year he's only at Wimbledon, but what tickets he managed to get. Centre Court, right in the middle behind the court. Lovely.

We got to see Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal and Robin Soderling play which were all very good to watch (and who all won). We also wandered around the grounds a bit to take in some of the outside courts.

And of course we had the obligatory Pimms and strawberries. :)

Wimbledon is such a great event, I love it - the atmosphere, the tennis, the whole Britishness of it that pervades the entire place.

Next year, I may even get around to getting my own tickets!

Greenwich

Yesterday we went to Greenwich and had a wander. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, the sky was the brightest blue. We wandered through the parks and historical buildings and ended the day up at the observatory looking over London at night. It was simply beautiful, and it felt like being at Mt Coot-tha.


Famous!

I checked my recent activity on Flickr the other day, and I had a message saying:
<td></td> <td>urbanmonarch says:
This photo was included in classic keys on urban monarch.</td>


So I went to check it out, and my photo of my keys got included on this slideshow of 13 photos of keyrings.

Random, yet cool.
