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!
