Waiting …

… in anticipation, for the next few weeks to slip by! So much to look forward to! Special birthdays, and aeroplane trips and the best of all! A day at the races! Always a firm favourite, and one that I missed last year!

I am counting down the days!

Working on my outfit, and wondering whether to wear a hat or fascinator! The theme this year is "A Royal Affair". Got to be careful not to be dreary, but to choose something light and airy! Not too risqué, but elegant and stylish!

Comfortable shoes which won't pinch when I walk down to the parade ring to watch Rob's horse prepare to gallop down to the start!

My hat shouldn't be so big that it blocks the view of the people behind me, but then again, I'll be in the box, being indulging in French Champagne and tiny hors d'oeuvres!

Don't want to be weighed down with a handbag full of silly bits and pieces and perhaps a warm throw, in case it gets chilly when the sun goes down!

Oh my oh my! 3 weeks to go! Watch out Greyville – here I come!

Sounds wonderful and so great to look forward to...we always watch the 3 legs of the Triple Crown here...someday it would be nice to attend the Derby but I know it wouldn't be in the same style as you.
Hat definitely!
