A few tips for those thinking about queuing at Wimbledon – to get a show court ticket it is an overnight job.
When you get to the park where the queue begins, you get a ticket which is your place in the queue. You put your tent up although some people still elect to sleep under the stars, its fine if it is dry night but i have experienced drizzle and it was a very long night for those without tents.
You can use any tent as the queue is now in a park and all on grass. Some of the tents are quite big ie 4 man jobs.
It is very well organised and there is a snack van on the park which sells bacon sandwiches first thing on a morning but is not open late at night,
Each morning you are woken by the of the early morning…

Bought a new bike – not had a new one for a few years
The deal was no pedals supplied, but when it came they had put a set in a box which was nice
It has sat in the room for 2 weeks, weather not good
looking at it, fantastically made piece of design and engineering
The weather has turned, sun came out
Went for a ride, gears smooth, bike wants to go quickly
Getting from A-B so fast
Going up hills I thought would be difficult
The gear range is so good, cruise up them
Like it lots
In the box, is it alive or dead
Schrodinger’s cat, it’s all in the head
What do we think is it’s current state
Is it ok or is it too late
On a train journey from York to Durham.
laptop, notepad, smart phone
beep, flicker, connect and drone
machines on people’s laps
many little taps
linking to contacts by email and text
looking at messages and selecting the next
constant sound of ring tones
of blackberries and i-phones
the journey has changed from a time before
connecting to others, now at the fore.
Clusters of snowdrops, so green and white
Nodding their flowers, such a beautiful sight
Heartening as nature moves towards spring
Hearing the dawn chorus as the songbirds sing.
