Wednesday was the Hannans Handicap (aka Ladies Day) at the races. I went to work in the morning, ran home and threw on my dress and fascinator and off we went. I decided to take the tiny point and shoot camera that kept me company on dance floors all around Europe in 2010 (a decision I would immediately regret) but took some decent ones with my DSLR before we left the house.
And that’s where the decent photography ends. Oh well! Grab a drink.
My housemate Bec’s mum, dad and sister made the trip to Kalgoorlie for Ladies and Cup Day (tomorrow). How lovely it must be to have visitors! (HINT HINT)
I quickly learnt that those not invited to take part in a photo would make an effort to lurk creepily in the background.
There was some pretty impressive head wear on course:
Em got plucked from the crowd along with a few select others to take part in the best hat competition. Look how cute she is:
Unfortunately she didn’t win, but she was the winner in our eyes.
I won $26.70 on the first race and then nothing else for the rest of the day. Boo.
Fun times. Exhaustion well and truly setting in (insomnia has made its evil return), so it will be interesting to see how we go at the Cup tomorrow (the BIG one).
