Although it didn’t feature in my Christmas Gift Ideas for Tennis Lovers blog post (as I only discovered it afterwards) I ended up buying my other half a Babolat POP from Tennis Warehouse Europe for Xmas. I wasn’t sure if it was just a bit of a gimmick, but it actually turns out that he […]

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

So it turns out I used to spend a lot more time thinking about drinking less alcohol than I do now about drinking more – who’d have thought?! Hence this was a surprisingly easy week in terms of my Dry January. Being at home every evening without chilled white wine in the fridge certainly helped, […]

If you are travelling to the Australian Open this year, then please just know that I am very jealous of you and hope you suffer terribly the heat and jet-lag. Just kidding! I actually hope you will tell me all about how awesome it is in the comments to this blog post or on my […]

I posted my first tennis progress video on Instagram this year in July, the same month I signed up. I remember being pretty excited after 50 people had viewed it, as I only had about 20 followers at the time. It was a rather poor slow-motion service video, but it now has about 500 views […]

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

If there is one thing that I am especially terrible at, it is cleaning out myΒ handbags. Much like the drawers in my house, they are full of things I really should have already thrown away. If you delve inside any of the bags stored in my wardrobe you are likely to find most, if not […]
