Confessions of a (temporary) Gadabout

Murray wins at Queen's Club 2013 IMG_0803I am very conscious of ghastly gaps in my posts. This is far from any loss of interest on my part but totally due to a rush of tempting invitations and events that see us dashing up and down the country.

Gather ye roses and all that – we find it very easy to succumb to every attractive chance to meet up with friends and/or attend interesting functions. Fortunately the wonderful Janet, Carol and co are on the spot so as far as our guests are concerned, there is no break in the service. As far as blogs etc go, the breaks in transmission are rather more obvious.

However, in brief – as estate agents always begin a lengthy list of dull features in the house they have little chance of selling – last weekend we were invited by some very generous friends to go to the Queen’s Club for the semi finals of what is now known as the Aegon Championships.

What a lovely day we had! We were very lucky with the weather, which dawned most unpromisingly, so we arrived at Queen’s amply provided with umbrellas, thermal vests and waterproofs. In fact the sun came out and we sat in sunshine all day. We saw three matches, ending with Andy Murray beating Benjamin Becker. Will this be the year Murray eventually wins Wimbledon?

Back home on Sunday, and like I am sure many of you,  we watched Andy win the finals before being greatly entertained by Boris et al appearing on court with Murray and Henman to raise money for the Royal Marsden.
