I arrived back at the 'mobile shed' yesterday morning having spent three days in Essex with my Mother who had been taken ill. At 80+ years Mum is finding it difficult to bounce back from a variety of health issues and Tuesday found us at Southend Hospital followed by another visit to the same on Wednesday. For now all is OK and I have returned to Norfolk to continue our holiday.
And in holiday mode, today we went horse racing! There was a meeting at Yarmouth Race Course and we took ourselves along and enjoyed a great day. There were seven races on the card and with an each-way bet on each race I picked three winners and a 2nd placed horse and came away having doubled my stake!!
We enjoyed the day so much I will be looking to go racing again after all, there are so many courses close by our stamping grounds of canals and rivers!
