And they’re racing in the Melbourne Cup!

Toy tin horses racing

As this post goes to air just about all of Australia will be glued to the telly, roast chicken leg in one hand, glass of bubbly stuff in the other.  Yes, it’s Melbourne Cup day.  The race that stops a nation.

That is, except for all the mums like me who will be on the school run. I bet all the chocolate covered strawberries will be gone by the time I get back. Luckily swiped some before I left.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
