Well, the picture tells the story doesn't it? But not all of it!
We woke up late expecting the races to be cancelled in light of the dire forecast. But no- the announcement was positive. They were going ahead. After a quick turn around including swift picnic preparation, we set off to our friends' house for coffee. They have just moved beside the race course to a lovely cottage- and served homemade cake. I couldn't have any - I was very sour!
We set up camp afterwards at the race-course and miraculously the rain stayed away until the fifth race. We managed to sit outside at the car, and had a lovely time. All eight of us. Six adults and two teens. It was fun.
I had one reasonable winner but I wasn't on top form. Other half and teenager did better.
Just before the fifth race the heavens suddenly opened. It was a spectacular display of water, followed by a spectacular display of mud and stuck cars. We managed to get out ok.
I have just made a homemade chicken curry for the boys. I had a piece of plain cod. I am having to be hyper careful. I am still in some pain. It is very tedious. But folks- I am feeling a lot more cheery compared to yesterday.
If Newcastle United beat Leicester tonight, that will be boost too.
Hope everyone who had a bank holiday today had a fun ( and dry) one.

Sounds like fun, until you had to dash out.
Take care....plain cod? you poor dear.

So glad you are feeling a bit better. And enjoyed a good day at the races (that curry sounds scrummy). I would love to have a day at the races but keep forgetting to organise it. Here's another prompt to get my act together!

No Bank Holidays here in the US. :-/

Glad you had an enjoyable day, albeit wet and without cake.

And yes, Emmy's Winnie the Pooh is indeed well loved. :o)

Have a great rest of your week, and hope your digestive troubles are soon over.

I hope Newcastle's win cheered you up. Weather sounded horrendous (I was listening to match commentary on the radio as I drove home).

Fingers crossed there's light at the end of the tunnel on your digestive woes. It's not good for you to be constantly in pain, interspersed with agony!
