We went to The Amari Watergate Hotel yesterday to celebrate The Melbourne Cup. It was a fantastic day......it started at 9.30am with champers (having been last year Jen (JJ) and I thought it would be a good idea to go a wee bit later) so we didn't arrive till 11am - and guess what.......we managed to completely miss the race!!! Oh well.....we only went for the alcohol anyway!!
This photo is of the venue - people get all dressed up as you can see from the people on the stage and the horse in the corner of the picture
This is Claire as one of the Carmen Mirandas
The horse turned out to be Wellie who hosted my Art Exhibition
It was a really good laugh and Mum had a ball but as you can see....it all got a bit messy!!
We went to the after show party in the Soi 8 bar.....I think we left sometime around 10pm.....and we eventually got to bed just after midnight (once we had managed to kick my friend Louise out the door!!)
I am happy to report that no-one in our household was 'Hang hang hang' today - although I think Louise was feeling slightly delicate!!!
