Anyway, on to the first major thing...we were part of the London 2012 Olympics!! We had tickets for the tennis on Tuesday 31st July, played at Wimbledon. We'd applied for lots of tickets last year, but only got one set, which was tennis. The tickets were for Court 1, you know, the one without a roof...Our trip started the day before, as we travelled down a day early so we could soak up the Olympic atmosphere in London. We saw the Olympic rings on Tower Bridge, on a barge on the Thames and forced Amy to have her photo taken with every 'Wenlock' or 'Mandeville' statue we saw as we walked around!

We walked around the practise courts first and saw Team GB's Heather Watson warming up with her coach, Judy Murray.

We then went onto Centre Court and had our photo taken before play started, followed by our photo outside the front of the main building.

Now bring on the paralympics!!
