What are you doing Melbourne Cup day 2013?


Another beautiful, glorious day in Melbourne. It’s Tuesday 5 November 2013. While the lovely ladies all over Melbourne get dressed in all their finery and head to Flemington Race Course we are staying home to relax and enjoy the sunshine and day off.

An English friend of mine remarked the other day that it was amazing that we had a day off for a horse race. Yes it is a horse race but one of the greatest horse races in the world I told her. Melbourne Cup day is very special to Melbournians. It’s a day to get dressed up and head to Flemington to celebrate Spring with your friends. If you don’t go to Flemington it’s a day to get together with friends and family and have a BBQ in the backyard while you watch the most beautiful horses in the world race each other under the Australian sun.  It is a beautiful day spent in any way you like.

My day today was about family, crochet, roses, geraniums and gardening. Just the way to spend a beautiful Melbourne Cup day.
