Anyone who knows me will know that gymnastics is my first love so when I heard the World Gymnastics Championship was coming to London next year I was determined not to miss out.
Over the last few months I have been Googling it to check out dates and when tickets went on sale. They went on sale today at 9:00 am and having already done my research I knew there was no point going via the Internet as I wouldn't get the location I wanted and Daughter had requested. It's the best location in front of the beam and floor. Armed with the phone number and the seating plan at 9:00 am I started dialling and hitting redial until I finally got through. I am now the owner of two front row, yes front row tickets right where I wanted to be in Block 402 for the Final of the Women's Overall Gymnastics Championship on 16th October 2009.
We couldn't get a good location on the lower tier and when I asked the gentleman on the phone to check availability in Block 402 and then asked which row when he came back and said Row A I snapped them up straight away. I can't wait, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning looking at all the presents with my name on them.
I can only hope I'll be so lucky when it's time to buy tickets for the Olympics in 2012.
Off to try and calm down.
