Earlier this month, the calm of the Cotswolds was disturbed momentarily. Why?
For the Cheltenham Festival, of course!
One of the biggest events in horse racing, every March ladies and gents flock from the world over to glorious Gloucestershire, ready to place a bet on their favourite runners, dress up in their finery, and enjoy a tipple or two. Anyone who's anyone is sure to be seen at the course - including the Duchess of Cambridge on several occasions - so you could say that it's quite an important event on the social calendar.
Mum and I had a much better idea, though.
