Horse racing @ Doomben

Straight after arriving from Tokyo

It was a very fine day indeed.

Thank you for winning ! 

After Doomben,  we hosted a dinner party
at Riding Road. 

By request, lamb chops. 

Also by request, I had just purchased an electric grill plate. 
It worked perfectly - happy, happy. 

Chikako bought some green tea cake from Japan
for dessert. 

Dinner went well.

The plants seemed to be thriving.
