Food, tennis, sun anyone??

Hi just a quick hello it's so hard to lock myself away & KReate or blog as it's summertime but just had to share/skite about my fabulous weekend of all of the above.

The weekend kicked off with my dear friend Mary whipping up a quick paella for us all on Friday night - so scrummy!

Then Saturday was I lucky - after I'd say a dozen years of being a volunteer at Stanley St for the women's tennis - this year I said NO I don't have enough annual leave to spare so wouldn't be involved & then missed out on tickets in the stand on the day I was trying to get - so entered online competitions to win a corporate box & blow me down with a feather I won - so a huge thank you to 1ZB & the Radio Network it was fantastic & we were looked after very well with food & drink (I had a gorgeous  Smoked Salmon Salad for lunch with bubbly, followed by frozen Pina Coladas & then strawberries & ice cream).

All of my friends in the box pre-lunch (Richard, Donna, Kathryn, me, Pete & Cathy):

Sandie & Maureen working the Yock stand before it kicked off - offered them a seat but no they were too dedicated (silly them).

Look how close we were to centre court!

The compulsory photo opportunty/obligation  with the doubles winners Cara Black & Liezel Huber, who are also the world's no. 1 doubles combination (Liezel, me, Donna, Cara):

It's almost enough to make me dust off my tennis racquet - hopefully be back soon with some KReating!

Ciao for now.

Congratulations Karen, what a fab prize to win. If you can hear a funny noise that's me gnashing my teeth in envy about your summer; we have a lot of snow on the ground and I'm fed up with it :)
