This weekend in South Australia we have a day off for The Adelaide Cup.
Growing up horse racing was a hobby of my fathers so often the whole family went to things like Oakbank and The Adelaide Cup.. I cannot recall an Easter that we didn't go down to Oakbank on the Easter Monday. The part my siblings and I looked forward to was going on the sideshows.
So tomorrow we South Aussie's get a day off and I might watch the race on TV if I remember. For the next three weeks we have short weeks. This week we have the Adelaide Cup, next week Good Friday and the following week Easter Monday. The children will have two weeks of school after Easter and then we have two weeks holidays.
