Some of us met at Monica's for a quick breakfast and a car to take us to Wimbledon (part of the package she booked)
LtoR Shaun, Josh, Lesley and James
L (in the hat) Monica; just behind her,James, Phil, Lesley, Natasha and with her back to me, Kirsty
past the roll of champions wall...
terrine, lamb, and peach melba, if you're interested..
back past the wall of champions.
my starter, the terrine (very nice)
(I mentioned 4 courses, the 4th was cheese, which was a group cheese board, but I'm not fond of cheese unless it's cheddar in a sandwich!)
It was time to head down to Centre Court (only one flight of stairs and along the concourse
we had thought our tickets were right alongside, but in fact we were opposite.
no doubt all the famous celebs will be wanting to go to the supposedly more glamorous Men's Final on Sunday (which is now today as I write this!)
we thought this could be a great final, they were very evenly matched in this set...
first to the press..
we headed back to our suite..
however, I wasn't really hungry yet, so Leslie and I headed back to court, as the Men's Doubles final was about to start... little did we know how long this one would last, if the singles was over in a flash...
after a little while I slipped back to the suite for a loo break
I said no more action pictures... not quite accurate.. a challenge had been laid down between Phil and Josh - a "plank" challenge...
well some of us were, (Lesley and myself) the rest seemed to still have energy for drinks down in Wimbledon Village...
in the car, heading home..
the hospitality package included a free Wimbledon towel, for each of us, and a £25 Karen Millen gift voucher..
here are mine, with my souvenir programme and my tickets, at home after a long and exhausting day...
a HUGE thank you from me, on behalf of all of your team, to Monica, for once again treating us so lavishly for this wonderful day out.
a HUGE thank you too, to our Suite "staff", hostess Rosie and Suite Manager Sian, who looked after us so well (what goes on in the Suite, stays in the Suite...) catering to our every (liquid) need all day. You were amazing.
