I was looking forward to overnighting in a quiet bedroom, with no kids and no cats for a change. A 6ft by 3ft canvas painting in my best friend’s spare room had other ideas and landed on my head at 3 am. There was a minor moment of spinning panic trying to work out what had happened as a bump worthy of humpty sprouted on my head. I’m glad that I was sleeping on my side not on my back or I could have been wearing a broken nose to Ascot. I spent a pretty useless hour before dropping back off to sleep, fretting I had concussion and trying to remember the code to get the ambulance through the gates to her housing complex if I did.
The next day at Ascot was amazing. I got to see the Queen and spent a lovely day in the Royal Enclosure. I didn’t win, but it was a great experience. The ladies just looked incredible in their outfits and wonderful hats. The other highlight of my day is that I have been asked to perform an extract of the Vagina Monologues at a production for Charity next year. I am absolutely honored to be asked to take part and have decided that any money I raise will go to Refuge as the whole event is about the prevention of domestic violence against Women and Children.
