I think this is well worth a mention.

Yes its Grand National Day. Last year I had a small bet on the national but my horse fell at the second fence. The horse I changed on my betting slip actually won last year. Never Mind...

Back to it....... This year my fortunes changed because I backed the Winner. Numbersixvalverde. What an horse. I bet £5.00 each way 11/1 so the stake was £7.50 when it came in. Got £78.75 from the William Hill. Very happy my once year bet came in.

I was out shopping with her in doors when the race was being run, I took my phone with a radio so I could listen in. Thing is on a Saturday here in the UK football dominates, so the only results I could here on all stations were the football results. Had to wait for the news to find out the winner, next year I'll stay at home to watch it live.
Anyway good result for the day....

Picture of the Winner.
Which One I hear you ask? The one in front obviously.

2017 The End

Here, writing this in late January.. 

Didn't get around to doing one this year, a post that is. Was a good year all in all. 

Things I did do, saw number one get married, lowered my camper, had lots of weekends away with her in doors. And worked like a dog, again. Really need to get that back into spec. Maybe the new year can help me there. Oh yes Monte Carlo or bust... 

So what's planned in 2018 ... So in January alone, two theatre trips, church stuff, start of Crafty Craft planning, newly restored VW engine.. And a potential sale of Caroline. Let's see. Moped Rally with Josh ... 

Weekend at the end of the month I'm at dinner with Only Fools in Birmingham. More to come on that one. so, back to alittle bible reading, blogging and getting involved. Just the bike to dust off now :-)
