151/365 – A day at the races

When someone asks whether you’d like to spend the day at the races in a box (not a horse one), then it would be rude to turn the opportunity down.  Not least because it’s a chance to don a frock and have a flutter.   So today we spent the afternoon at Nottingham races where we wined and dined and placed tiny bets on all 8 races.  Lots of tiny bets equals one big one, and the only winner was the bookie plus one of our party who won something on every single race (beginners luck I say).
