I have been invited to at tend Melbourne Cup and most people say your so lucky and how exciting, but I am not really wanting to go. I feel there is so much to organise with the kids as we will be away over night and don’t have family here to help out. I don’t really want to be surrounded by people for the day who are stick thin and eating lettuce leaves and the whole hype of fashion on the fields. It is a corporate thing will not know anyone so make polite conversation with people who I will probably never see again. I do feel ungrateful as I know a lot of people love this sort of thing but for me I find it all a bit fake. Oh well sorry to whinge but just spent all day looking for an outfit, shoes and hat to wear and matching bag all for one day! What a waste!
