Christmas at Christ Church College, University of Oxford

Oxmas: Merry Christmas from Oxford

I have been to Wimbledon pretty much every year for the past 8-10 years, either going as a spectator or working there. Sadly, this is the first year that I will not be able to make it, and so I’m currently feeling somewhat nostalgic! Anyway, we had a wonderful time exploring Roland Garros. My parents and brother came over, and we headed off to see the tennis on the 28th May. We had a wonderful time, and luckily the weather stayed calm – there were forecasts of rain, but it never turned up so phew!
