Yesterday was our yearly day out with the girls! (aka Steph and family!) - we went to Goodwood Ladies Day (and it rained!) However rain never stopped us having a fab day and on checking my money when I got home I had spent £18 (not as good as last year when I actually came home with more than I left with!!).

Yesterday's 365 challenge quote was:
"Listen to the Musn't's child, Listen to the Don't's. Listen to the Shouldn't's, the Impossibles, the Won't's. Listen to the Never Haves, then Listen close to me. ANYthing can happen, child, ANYthing can Be.”

—Shel Silverstein (1930-1999), poet, songwriter, musician


I should't bet on the horses (its a mugs game!), I musn't lose too much money (I have children to feed!) It is impossible to win anything! (well I was only putting £2-£4 per race!) Well anything can happen - I was having bad luck - wasn't winning anything!! I decided for the last race to phone Jack - told him to pick a number between 1 and 22 and he choose 8 - I put £2 (last of the big spenders!) on number 8 (Total Impact) to win - and it did - we won £14.00!!!! I only had £7.00 of this as I agreed to split the winnings with Jack! - Anything can happen!
