Great excitement in the household today for the National.
We made our way to the bookies early clutching our £1 stake in our grubby mitts. I got evicted, didn’t know I wasn’t allowed in. However, the Big M put my bet on for me. A horse called Many Clouds, which I picked by dribbling on the runners in the paper.
At 4.15 we crowded round the telly to watch. The Big M and D’s horses did rubbishy. I on the other hand won! Ice creams on me!
