Melbourne Cup - in the pink!


It's Melbourne Cup weekend 
and I've had five days off work - Yay!
Only in Australia would the horse 'race that stops the nation'
be cause for a day, or two, depending on where you work, off work.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival 2015 
is spread over four days, each day has a different style and feel.
Getting raceday ready takes effort,
as there is strict racewear etiquette.

Think sophistication, think classy
think Wren in a blind panic!


Whilst I could possibly pull something out of the wardrobe for Derby Day,
which is all about the timeless elegance of black & white.
Well sort of... 

Melbourne Cup is all about striking colours and a statement hat
Hmmmm, I've got my own interpretation of this.
I've got myself a pink hat, some pink shoes and a pink bag,
Pink fingers and pink toes...



I'm not sure what type of a statement I am going to make...
I think I'm going to look a bit like the dolly-mixture sweets!
I've already been told by Daughter No 1 to ditch the pink shoes


There's a horse running called Max Dynamite
maybe I should back him.
Shame there's not a horse running called
'Last minute shopper' or 'wearing it all'!

Counting down to Melbourne Cup tomorrow
Can't wait!
Linking with Mosaic Monday,

With thanks to Beverley at How Sweet the Sound,
Judith at Lavender Cottage & all the hosts at Our World Tuesday.

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.


Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

Brilliant Britain in the Spring

It has been a long, hard and bleak British winter which has made Spring  all the more delightful for everyone, and especially wonderful for me  arriving in the UK from the hot and humid tropics.

Of course, we arrived to for a quick visit to catch up with family and friends  to find everyone apologising for the dismal, cold weather  - not at all I said, I love it cool these days!

We've had a wonderful time, enjoying beautiful Britain in the Spring.  Everything seems particularly green this year.
The flowers are out to delight, we just love the tulips at Dyrham House and the bluebells woods are stunning. By the May Bank holiday weekend, the weather was being reported as a 28-degree scorcher. Yeah right, it was spot on perfect for me. 
I'm heading back to Bangkok this week where the temperature will be scorching no fib!

I have finished off my Blogging from A to Z (2018) Challenge. Thank you to everyone who has popped over to find me at my new space on the internet. In case you m…
