The Office Fascinator

Sadly, for him, and his followers, it was not to be Bart's Bakers Dozen this year.

Shocking, ridden by Corey Brown and trained by Mark Kavanagh has won the 2009 Melbourne Cup. His owner, Laurence Eales, revealed at the presentation that he had a pre-written acceptance speech in his pocket. If only he had shared that with us beforehand ...

Oh well, there is always next year!

Even Google got in on the act.

Fashions on the field were spectacular as usual (click on the link below for some of them)


The fascinators were out at the office Cup luncheon too.

At the last minute, I decided that I should have a statement on my head also and set to work with a few minutes and available props and actually produced an appropriately named office fascinator, which took out the prize. Yeaha! You will see bits of stationery and packing tape, as well as racing form, betting tickets and reminders.

And ... it won't have to be thrown at the back of the cupboard and forgotten about; turn it over and it's a carry tray for 4 cups of coffee! Very versatile!
