See you next Sunday!

It’s ok! I’m not going anywhere because Uncle Boris won’t allow it, but I am taking a social media break this week for personal reasons. A couple of my really close racing friends know why so we’ll just leave it there.

My automated blog posts will continue as per usual however, and hopefully there will be some Aintree nuggets contained in there later in the week! 😀

Looking forward to resuming my own Aintree journey next Sunday, but for now I need a short break to contemplate and self-evaluate away from the frantic din of social media. I suspect it will be highly beneficial cleansing mechanism.

Have a great Aintree!
