Last weekend a few of my closest university friends got together for a birthday celebration for Becca at Ascot Racecourse, a day out that's a bit different to a usual birthday and so much fun.
Here's a photo diary of the day with a bit of my commentating throughout (ha, get it!)
So here we have the birthday girl, Becca on the left with Sophie watching her opponent closely as she over-takes, in the race to arrive at Ascot. Becca has her eyes on the prize (a glass of Rosé of course) as she keeps up the pace.
I'm keeping hydrated with an appropriately named bottle of Smart water. How fitting.
Reaching the entrance gates at the same time - it was a close call! It seems only fair we all treat ourselves to the prize glass of Rosé while we wait for the others to catch up.
The real racers are walking around the green, warming up for the races ahead.
And here come the other race-goers; Beth and Paris on the left. What slowcoaches!
Here's Carla getting in a quick selfie before the real race starts - who, by the way, managed to win on some of her bets later on in the day! I knew I should have copied her bets...
Becca with her winning prize of Rosé and her fellow contestant, Paris, who didn't make it to the finish line in time to get herself a glass too! Paris thought ahead and decided to seek some advice from the tipster, Michael, before she put her money on a horse...
...I'm sneaking in to hear what advice Michael has to say to Paris about the next race. I. Must. Win. Something.
Ready, Set, GO!
Are we going to win?
No winnings for us - not even a penny. Better take a quick selfie to cheer us up!
Becca on the other hand decided to take it out on good ol' Michael by stealing his hat!
None of that, Misses! It may be your birthday but Michael wants his hat back!

Sophie - ASOS
Me - Oasis
Paris - Zara

Here's all of us together after all the races were over. With the addition of Christie, who must've been strolling behind to have not got in any of the previous photos!
What I want to know is how did she manage to get the winning prize of Rosé if she came last?
