Day 393

We are back from Melbourne.  Exhausted yet deeply satisfied.  Funnily enough as we were leaving Melbourne everyone else was entering.  It turns out that the cheerleading Nationals were probably the least important thing going on in Melbourne this week.  Spirited two legged cheerleaders now need to move aside for the frisky four legged filly.

It is Melbourne Cup day.  The day where a horse race brings Australia to a stand still.   The day when, 16 years ago, Derek and I met.  I told you all the story last year.  Click here if you would like a re-read.

So what are Derek and I going going to do for our meet-aversary?  Well, it's kinda hard to do anything. Derek has tried to put things in place so that we can spend the arvo together at a nearby club getting involved in Melbourne Cup activities, but unfortunately my diary is kinda ruining things.  Going to Nationals put everything else on hold and this week I am on catch up.  I have appointments this arvo. Hmmm.  What to do, what to do?

I guess we'll work it out.

In the meantime, does anyone have any race tips for me?  I'm not talking which hat to wear, I am asking which horse to back ..... any idea?

Happy Melbourne Cup day everybody.

PS  I just rang and cancelled appoinments.
