This year there was talk amongst us.
Excitement and talk.
Of doing something 'special' for Melbourne Cup Day.
Talk of ditching the jeans and kids for a day.
Of frocking up, dining out, indulging and living it up.
We ditched the jeans but not the kids.
We fed, we changed, we played, we refereed, we mopped up spills not our own.
We indulged - but moderately.
We had a sweep or two - the race kind and the broom kind.
|Guess who backed the winner today?|
Who says you can't have a messy Melbourne Cup with kids in tow?
Who says you can't get trashed?
Just in a completely different way to the 'fashions of the field' teetering around the country this evening, heels in hand.
|One in every crowd!|
The company, the shared food, the bubbles with friends, the feeling here was fabulous.
But next year.
Next year, girls.
Did you back a winner today?
