Apologies for being a little late with my DT share for the new challenge over at 

but this morning I finished off the ironing outside (great way to top up my tan) and then I went for a 3 mile walk (there and back) with my DH to the fairly new Starbucks for lunch.

Anyway as it's the last Tuesday of the month we have our usual theme of
