Hiya,

Have to be quick here as using my work computer again...still no luck on fixing our home computer!  Just wanted to let you all know that I had a fabulous weekend. 

It started with a houseparty/bbq on Friday night with a lot of Irish people and my friend Louise, a delicious fry-up on Saturday morning, a racing picnic/party in the sunshine in Carlton gardens with yummy food and a lot of champagne, a didgeriedo (??spelling) lesson at another bbq, another houseparty Saturday night, shopping at Victoria market, shopping for race day attire and lovely meal with Belinda, Dave and Amanda last night.  I also got to sleep in both days which was exactly what I needed.

I have to work today but I am really, really excited for tonight.  I have been waiting for this day for about 3-4 months now.  I am going to see Sasha and Digweed together!!  I can't wait.  The festivities will be preceeded by Drag Queen bingo which should also be interesting. 

Tomorrow I am taking part in the "celebration that stops the nation" - the Melbourne Cup!  I'm going with Louise from Scotland and Saffina from London.  We have prepared a great picnic with cheeses and bread, meats, dips, fruit salad, Greek salad, pasta salad...  I'm getting dressed up in a hat and dress and can't wait to get in amongst it all.  I am going to place a few bets and no matter what others have said - I will see the horses!

Did I mention that my diet starts on Wednesday?!?! (I also joined the gym last week and attended a few interesting group classes - boxing and dancing!!)

I will have a lot to tell you about after Tuesday - stay tuned!

Hannah
