If you’re reading this blog post today then you’ve probably arrived out of curiosity or you have notifications set up for this blog. It certainly won’t be via Twitter or Facebook because I am avoiding both platforms until Sunday 11th April. The reason? Well, it’s a personal coping mechanism really. The Grand National is a massive part of my life and the fabric of my make-up, and to be unable to attend after almost 30 years of continuous attendance in either a social or a working capacity, is a bitter pill to swallow. I only cancelled my hotel last night!

There were still possible avenues and opportunities to attend, even behind closed doors, but they have all been closed to me – often in an ungracious manner. If others are deemed more worthy, then so be it, but it won’t diminish my continuous love for Aintree in “normal times”.

Of course social media platforms have their issues. As well as bringing great joy to people on occasion, they often create elements of misery. Watching individuals posting pics and effectively gloating “Hey, look at me – I’m at Aintree”, hurts me and others deeply and I personally don’t want to see any of it – the Cheltenham Festival “show offs” were bad enough. Therefore until Aintree is over, I shall not be looking at social media and I will “enjoy” it on my terms at home.
