A Day at the Races....

When your sewing machine has gone in for a much-needed service, what are you going to do with your time when you have the day off work? Well, you could always go to the local races!!!
I have lived in this area for over 24 years now and this is the first time that I haven't worked on race day. It is also school holidays here so some of my teacher friends took advantage of the opportunity to go to the Cup.
My daughter also attended with some of her friends. We loved looking at all of the pretty outfits - on both the ladies and the guys!
My friend was able to get us last minute tickets into one of the marquees which was situated right beside the track so we had a great view of the races.
We had a lovely afternoon, but it sure was nice at the end of the day to go home, take off my shoes (I am not used to wearing heels) and have a bath.


  1. Well of *course* you went to the races! Did you win anything?

  2. Looks like it was a great day! I love a day at the races, its a lot of fun!

  3. I need to go to the races here once as well! You look so pretty

  4. Ahh, now this is something we don't do in Canada! You and your daughter & friends look lovely Kisten. :)
