Today is Wednesday.. There are 3 sleeps left. On Friday afternoon we fly into Melbourne. On Saturday I return to the famous Flemington Racecourse. I haven't been to the track since Melbourne Cup Week. In one sense returning to the mounting yard and the media centre room will be bittersweet. But most important is that on Saturday there is a VERY important little horse race taking place at Flemington. And (touch wood!!!) a VERY VERY VERY important little horse will be running in that race. My mind is beginning to do it's mental counting down and writing of lists (all in my head at this point, which isn't much good until I set it down on paper) of all the things I need to take, and organise before we fly out.
