"Ticking Roger off the bucket list."

Hello,

What a great start to 2017. I managed to tick one off the bucket list.


 We had tickets to the Hopman Cup to see Roger Federer play on Monday. We were part of the record breaking crowd. Definitely the best night of sport and sportsmanship I have seen. No wonder they call him Mr Perfect.


This year we got tickets alongside the court, perfect viewing. EXCEPT for the biggest man ever sitting right in front of me.  I should have let Ian go in first! When he went to sit down I thought he wasn't going to fit in the seat. We watched him squeeze himself in. The armchair rests do have a bit of give. To think I was worried about a lady outside who was big.  Apart from that it was a great afternoon/evening of Tennis. So much goes on that you don't see on TV.
As per usual we stayed at our favourite Bed and Breakfast in Bedford after.

Happy days.
Bev C

Wahoo! So nice to be able to do something you've dreamed of for so long.
I don't really have a bucket list of my own, except for dreams of improvements and additions to the farm....

How lovely! Not just getting to go, but going to a special match that turned out that way. I'll bet he's happy to be out of that crowded bucket, too!

Lucky you! What a great night out that would have been :o)
We went to the Hopman Cup last year and had the best time - this year though I didn't have holidays this week so we didn't worry about trying for tickets
I hope you have a great 2017!

What a treat to see Roger Federer in person at the tennis. He is a credit to the game of tennis isn't he. He is one of my all time favourite tennis players. Some of the younger Australian players could certainly take lots of pages from his book!! Happy New Year to you, Bev.

Hello Bev, As has been said, what a great way to start your New Year. I love the movie Bucket List and couldn't help but watch it again as they played it for the umpteenth time over the holiday period, lol. Looking forward to seeing your sewing and your gardens this year. All the best. Clare

Hi Bev, Well, I am quite jealous (but happy for you!) that you were able to see Roger in person!!!! I love tennis....but sadly to say i haven't been able to keep up with it this January. My fave is Rafa...and so far this season I see he's hanging in there with wins.

Sorry I'm late checking in. But i wish you the best in 2017.
