OMG……. I WON…..
Ok, so I didn’t actually run in the race, I didn’t actually get on a horse and get all muddy and run and jump the crazy Aintree Grand National. BUT…. MY HORSE WON…. wohoooooo
Wanna know what I won?? Of course you do lol. Well I didn’t win cash. Nope, I didn’t do what thousands and thousands of British folk do on this day and blow a packet in the betting shop on a horse but… I did win a prize for picking the winning horse, a lovely bar of chocolate which I will enjoy later on when everyone else has gone to bed. Hehehe.
Every year Jay, Elly, sometimes, Jess and I gather around the tv to watch the famous Grand National Horse Race. We cut up all the horse names into little strips, place them in a hat and pick out an equal number each. The one holding the winning horse slip gets the chocolate. In recent years Jess and Jay have usually won but amazingly this year, I won and I’m one happy little winner. For a few moments its total bedlam in our house as the horses near the winning line. I’m sure you could hear us from there couldn’t you?
I suppose the race is especially important in our house as Red Rum, 3 times Winner of the Grand National was trained in my home town of Southport and we often saw him running on the beach. My Grandad, who won every time with Red Rum, loved him so much he actually commissioned a painting of him. Do you have some special event in your home town that brings you all together? I’d love to hear about it.
Here’s a layout withRed Rum taking centre stage. In the background you can just make out the sea. He’s training on Southport Beach. Sadly Rummy is no longer with us. He died on October 18th 1995 at the age of 30 and is buried at the finishing line with his head facing the winning post. But he will always live in our hearts.
