Balnarring is going to be home for us. We still haven't found a house. My plans of buying straight away gave evaporated due to the shrinking timeframe between now and when we need to move in, and the logistical hurdles that we still need to jump over. I sigh somewhat at the thought if having to move twice. It's not what is hoped for. But it is what it is.
Tomorrow is Caulfield Guineas day. "AJ" is running. That's Atlantic Jewel. I've played around with her a little lately. She's very pretty. I'm still unsure of the day we need to return home as I may have an early morning (in the dark of course!!) before we leave.
The subject of trackwork and getting up early is the order of the day at this time of year. It is all encompassing as the run to Melbourne Cup week begins to thunder down upon us. I love getting up early and being around the horses. I love leaving the house before dark to do it. "Do you miss him? Every Day..." I wrestle in my mind with flights that need to be changed, and the things that I need to get done.
