Back again!

It's just been work, work, work lately - me not the girls!

But as promised some piccies of our Ascot Day. It was in aid of breast cancer and was great value for money. We arrived to as much free Pimms and Champagne as you wanted and then had a fabulous 3 course lunch, then strawberries and cream, and then tea. We placed bets on every race, watched live on a big screen and I won a total of £1.84 - so not so good. There were about 200ish women there and my friend won the best hat, and it really was lovely.

Me in the green!

This was were we ate - and drank!

End of the day and me in the winning hat!

In fact at the end of the day we sat in the gardens swopping hats for some time, before the mini bus arrived to ferry us home, not looking quite as lady like as when he dropped us off !

Look at all those hats! Not something you'd see in the U.S. very often! They are great! I really wish we could move our family to England for a 1/2 year...

Oh this is so cool! I loved reading about it and seeing the hats. This is something we hear about in the U.S. but of course never get to see. Thank you so much for sharing. And by the way, I like your hat as much as the winning hat! ;)
