We very much enjoyed all the pre race coverage and listening for our horses to be mentioned, when they were, we all cheered.
Part of us wished we had a few real pennies on the race, a bit of extra money would be nice, but, if we lost everything, we would be totally gutted, thinking of the things we could have bought with the money we had frittered away, so betting with Red Nose Day chocolate coins seemed to be the most sensible option.
We sat on the settee clutching the names of our horses. The tension was palpable.
We shouted and then sighed when Darrell and Nigel’s horses fell by the wayside …..
But when we saw that my horse Oscar Time was left and in with a chance, we went bananas, jumping up and down and shouting him on. It’s a good job we have lovely neighbours who don’t mind our occasional bouts of exceptional excitement ….. which reminds me, I must warn them that the Eurovision Song Contest is coming up soon!
Oscar Time came in second, how brilliant was that? And I won a big pile of chocolate coins ….. which I shared equally with Darrell and Nigel, so it was a it was happy situation of a win win type nature!
