There were seven of us, including Kaz's daughter, who is visiting briefly from London, where she has been living and working for some time. She's a lovely young lady (calling her that, makes me sound like an old lady!) and it was nice chatting with her today.
Of course, Kaz is glowing with happiness, having her girl home for a while, which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :D
When morning tea was over, Aussie H and I took a long trike ride around the new estate and the man-made lake at the new end of town. We haven't spent time together for a while and it was really good to catch up with her.
It was quite late in the morning when we parted. I'm usually indoors by 10am, so I had an extra hour in the sun and this evening I noticed that I have a touch of sunburn. tsk tsk tsk
I came home to find Adoring Husband still feeling a little under the weather. We think he may have side effects from some new medication that he started a few days ago, so he has stopped taking it for now, to see if he feels any better over the next couple of days.
I didn't take any photos this morning while I was out, but I took a couple around the house this afternoon to match two of the items on my challenge list.

This afternoon we bought fish and chips and met Kaz, Lady Lynne, Aussie H and 'Associates' at the Lions Park for drinks, nibblies and dinner.
The weather, for a change, was very kind to us and even though it had been a hot day, there was a lovely cool breeze blowing that made for a very pleasant afternoon and evening.
Such a happy and relaxed group of people who are a real pleasure to be around.
I wandered down to the beach hoping to capture some nice sunset photos, but just as it was looking promising, the big grey clouds came scudding across and snuffed the sun out before the beauty could begin.
Adoring Husband and I took an early leave and came home for a fruit and juice ice block each.
He was early to bed, and I am about to follow.
It has, indeed, been a very happy Tuesday - if only I had some chocolate to top the day off :D
