It looks lovely Judy.
Same here Chookie.  Although I will fit in a Classic loaf as well.

Here is a photo of DH and the car he used for the wedding.

Does DH do many weddings with the old cars?

Wow Jean, look at you! Brave and trim. Well done.
Judy the plant stand looks lovely, now the hard bit to keep them all alive( well for me).
Chookie Ral and Mab enjoy your catch up.
Lots of catching up, business books, house etc before we go away, nothing exciting.

OMG, Cookie.  You do look good.  A real credit to you.
Bedlam, enjoy your break away.
We have arrived at the RACV Resort.  Lots of people our age and a bit younger.  We are on a special 3 night package. Luxury Ocean View room. Breakfast included and Dinner one night.
It took us 5 hours to get here, but that was with stops for Morning Coffee and lunch at a Road House. ( big petrol station with McDonalds, KFC and a couple of other food places ).  The traffics on the roads is very heavy and very fast.   We do not travel as well as we used to.  Just takes longer. It is 31 degrees here. 
Looking forward to catching up with Mab and her DH tomorrow.

That looks nice and peaceful Chookie.  It sounds as if you need that after the long trip.
Denise, placed where they are I cannot help but notice if any of the plants becomes stressed. Iíve not had a lot of shade house plants in my lifetime so I am hoping I have a bit of luck with these expensive poppets.

A very relaxing outlook Chookie. Have fun.

Thank you all for the lovely comments. Marina I would love to come over, hopefully fairly soon. I will certainly let you know.  I miss all my forum friends.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to see ' out the back' at a pathology centre this morning. I was invited by Diabetes WA. I absolutely loved it. We also had a presentation showing breast cancer cells and cervical cancer cells. There are 270 people work at this place. It was really informative.

Have a good time Chookie.

Blimey Cookie that's a different tour. LOL. No wonder it was fascinating for you.

It has been just fantastic to catch up with Mab and her DH.   I just knew Mab and I would get on just fine, but worry that Ral may not find anything in common with a TMX partner.  I neednít have worried as both men seemed to enjoy each otherís company.  It was nice to enjoy a meal together and as they decided to stay overnight, we also had breakfast together.   We were more than happy to help them celebrate their Wedding Anniversary.   They were married the same year as us.
The RACV Resort is pretty informal and we spent time in the Lounge chatting about all things TMX.  Mab presented us with some TMX made Yo- Yos, Ral Favourite Biscuits, that I hardly ever make. Ral hasalready sampled them and said, delicious.
I must admit, it has been nice not to cook for a few days.
Dinner in the Restaurant again tonight,  and then home tomorrow.  We are not looking forward to the trip as the roads are usually hell on Fridays.  We thought we might leave early but locals have said that unless we leave at 3 or 4 am it will be just as bad.
We might as well leave when we are ready and take our time.
Finally ,we really appreciated Mab and he DH taking the trouble to come and visit.

Itís always nice to meet our Thermomix friends and put names to faces.  So glad this took place and that, as usual, you enjoyed each othersí company.  Have a safe trip home tomorrow Chookie.

That's lovely Chookie and Margaret. It would have been lots of fun.
Drive safely Ral.

I went and had my hair cut today.
