Ducks and I successfully blew $35 on the Melbourne Cup today. Ducks usually has this uncanny knack of picking the winner but it seemed to escape her today. We did however have a lovely day with yummy brunch, lazing (and walking) by the river and white wine so, despite the lunacy of a day off for a horse race, we were very pleased for the public holiday bestowed on us.
And, to let you in on a little secret, we actually both had Monday off too which means that we had a 4 day weekend. The great beauty of this is that we go back to work tomorrow and 3 days later, it will be the weekend again!!! And even better than that is that there are only 2 sleeps until I get my blood test results!
