On Saturday we went to Ascot races with my parents.
It was their 50th Wedding Anniversary in April, so for their gift we’d booked a day at the races. Obviously we couldn’t let them go alone, so Simon and I went too!
We had an absolutely amazing day. The weather, which had been a bit hit and miss all week, was lovely. The journey down to the hotel, was uneventful and there was a great atmosphere at the course.
Me and Simon in our finest – I love getting glammed up! Despite searching for a new dress, in the end I decided to wear a Whistle dress that I had for Christmas. I wore it with some black heels, a black blazer and a black fascinator.
Me and my lovely Mum. She’s lost quite a bit of weight in the past year and is now paranoid about the wrinkles on her face, so she hardly smiles in photo’s anymore – she’s happy really!
I love Champagne and this one is my absolute favourite!
A pre-Champagne selfie to show off my fascinator!

All dressed up!

I won on the last race! Well done Childs Play (chosen because it reminded me of my little ones)!
As you can see we had a fantastic day!
We also stayed overnight at a local hotel, so it was such a treat to have a much-needed lie in and a lovely hotel breakfast the following day, before heading back for cuddles with my beauties!
