Oh yes, I went there.

How could I not? I grew up maybe 20 minutes from Wimbledon, and can recall every year in June that if I started sneezing and hay fever took a hold, then it must be Wimbledon…

My Mum is an avid tennis fan, and she was taught as a youngster by professionals, so for me, my summers as a child were spent enthralled by Mum’s passion for this odd sport of whacking a ball back and forth over a net.

I can’t say that I particularly understand it now, and she probably thinks me a complete philistine for not learning anything in 18 years of televised Tennis, but I do get how passionate people get about it.

For me?  Bring on the strawberries and champagne and Cliff Richard singing when the rain takes hold…

I hope you like my locket today. It’s the Mini Silver Locket with the Tennis Racket, Tennis Ball and a Hyacinth Crystal. Why a hyacinth crystal I hear you ask? Well, it’s orange, and all the TV ads are going to be showing the tennis players drinking orange squash…

It makes sense to me….

Happy Wimbledon-TV-remote-control-squabbling. See you in a couple of weeks!
