That's where I grew up. That's also where some kind of tennis-fueled madness takes over once a year. And it's that time of year again.

Despite growing up there, I only actually went once, perfering to beat the crowds and get the best of the action replays at home. That said, I rarely missed a game and used to schedule summer exam revision around the big matches.

My famly are all crazy tennis fans (my 99 yr old grandma still is!) and I have fond memories of watching the men's finals together on lazy afternoons after sunday lunch.

Wimbledon fortnight always makes me homesick for all the things I know and love about home, like...

... queues (!)...

...rain (!)...

... strawberries and cream, official food of the Championships (nom) ...

... and the Wombles of Wimbledon Common!

The Wombles of Wimbledon? They're so adorable! But not quite as cute as those tennis players...
