Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Wimbledon 2013

I have just got home fromWimbledon and am still buzzing. I was there for the semi-final matches of Djokovic vs Del Potro and Murray vs Janowicz. My seat was near the back so I didn't get great photos but I could see quite well and the atmosphere was incredible. I can't believe I've actually managed to see Murray play twice this season. If any of you are tennis fans and saw these matches on TV you will understand when I say they were two fantastics games with unbelievable tension and nail biting endings.

After the 3rd set they decided to close the roof as it was getting dark so we had a bit of a wait before they restarted the match and Murray took the 4th set. By then I had been watching tennis for nearly 9 hours. I was exhausted but elated.

  1. Wow That must have been exciting. I love playing tennis but I must admit I don't watch it often. I don't watch TV often.
