on wednesday we got new tee-shirts delivered .... and then the Melbourne Cup turned up with an entourage of trainers, race board representatives and photographers so not only did we get to see the melbourne cup but we got to wear our matching tops and get a group photo taken ... hilarious moment - there were speeches and all sorts....things like this happen all the time up here, its bizarre but true, like the ex-captain of the australian women's netball team Liz Ellis calling me a 'dirty kiwi' on TV ... buts thats another story ...
