The old grey mare...

Yesterday, we fronted up to the track for the last time for the autumn carnival. An impromptu holiday has meant we'll miss the last two meets. To be honest, I'm a little race weary. This filly (or perhaps I'm actually more of a mare) needs a to go out for a spell.

It's been fun though, yesterday we went sans kids, so it was relaxed. We went with friends who made the perfect group for a top day. There were a lot of laughs, a lot of over-sharing and a lot of fun. We watched horses, watched people, ate and drank. I picked two winners. I was designated driver so I feel right as reign today. Another win.

We came home to happy kids who'd had a fun day themselves, which made it even nicer.

A damn fine way to spend a Saturday.


  1. See, the races are great and I still haven't been, but I love hearing about it when you go... I guess this old grey mare she ain't, yeah, you know the rest!! x

  2. I'm glad you got out just the two of you! I love the pictures too.
    Miss you!

  3. Sounds like a great day - for the whole family!
    :-) x

  4. Ah fabulouso! I was actually driving home when everyone was spilling out of Randwick yesterday arvo. I always love getting stopped by the lights on Alison Rd there... because it gives me a chance to have a sticky beak at all the fashions! Yes, this is what I have been reduced to, no longer frocking up and going along myself, but checking out all the spunks and hotties from my car. Haha!
    Sounds like you had a great day, so pleased to hear it, you deserve it Corinne. Love that top pic, looks like some fun and craziness all rolled into one.
    And impromptu holiday sounds exciting!

  5. Well you won the trifecta - sounds like a lovely day!

  6. Looks like a great day out. Love the races, but they're a little more low key out here. Haven't been in a while thanks to kids, but maybe one day again soon.
    Sounds like a holiday is just what you need, Enjoy.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
