    4 and a half days to go. It’s getting on my nerves. I’m like a kid waiting for Santa. I go to bed, I get up and from the moment I’m awake I’m on edge thinking the same things over and over again.

    God knows how trainers cope.

    The excitement and the build up is half the fun! Imagine how dull it will all be when it’s over.

    Yeah the flat season will be here before you know it though, so don’t worry too much.

    I won’t be worrying at all! Flat as a fluke springs to mind!

    Cheltenham, love it, love it, love it. I always enter the RP Competition which adds to the fun, although I won’t be waiting till last minute this time, took what seemed like forever to put each entry on in the 10 to Follow, cos everyone was hanging on just in case.

    The most important thing is the welfare of the horses, so fingers crossed this year. Hopefully the softer ground should help.

    3 days 20 hours and 7 minutes lol.

    I’m looking forward to the start of the flat already to be honest I see it as an exciting year in prospect but we have Cheltenham and Aintree first and Chelts dominates my thoughts at the moment.

    The worst period is after Aintree and before the Guineas you don’t half get some dross then. It’s not so bad this year but last year was awful with the "highlight" being Channel 4’s Kempton all weather coverage. :(

    I still have a vivid picture of Derek Thompson’s shocked expression when one of the flat jockeys told him he prefered the turf to all weather.

    "Why"? said Thommo. I came so close to sending him an approximate five page essay.

    Me and Zoz have to text each other every 5 minutes to avoid us commiting accidental suicide from the sheer excitement.  I’m sure i’ve ruptured something in the last few days.<br>I don’t think i’ll sleep at all on Monday night.

    I’ve got the week off work as usual so I can snuggle up on my sofa every afternoon with a cup of tea, the Racing Post and a selection of biscuits. On the sofa that is except during races when I shall be either leaping up and down with excitement yelling at the TV or hiding in the kitchen because I can’t bear to watch!

    Ohhhhh I love it! :biggrin:

    I’m more likely to spill ’em if they win, with all the leaping up and down and celebrating I do!
