I last went to Ascot when I was about 12 years old. I remember it vividly . We got the train and it seemed such a very long way from Nottingham. I wore a straw boater, a blue flower prairie skirt and a navy blazer and a sailor top and I think some navy blue pointy shoes. It was hot and busy there and there were many very well dressed ladies with spectacular hats.
My dad was a racecourse bookie and was working so we spent the day fetching him cups of tea, getting tips and losing our money! People watching and seeing the beautiful horses were the highlights of my day. I would go again most definitely. This time I would be one of the posh grown up ladies.
Maybe next year. (or maybe this year if I can swing it..look I chose the outfit I would wear!)
