Enjoying sunshine on a bank holiday!!

Good morning

Shocking - firstly two posts in two days and then sunshine on a Bank Holiday in England!!

The boys and I hadn't planned to go far - domestic stuff needed doing and there was exam revision to do as well. However the gorgeous sunshine made us decide to have a barbecue. Once it was unearthed from the garage and all parts found - I went into town to buy supplies.

We spent the early part of the afternoon in the garden together - reading, surfing the net and revising;


I must confess I've never been in charge of a barbecue before but I decided it couldn't be hard after all most men can do it ;). Once it was lit - we waited to see if it would get hot enough to cook our food;


The sun moved round and so did we - I tried to snap the boys together but they sussed I was taking their photo;


I brought the boys both a tankard back from my weekend away - cider is the perfect partner with a barbecue;


It was lovely - food cooked to perfection - no swearing or muttering - no one even moaned about the insects trying to join us! I sat and watched the sun move round and shine behind the cherry tree;


Utterly blissful - here's hoping for some more perfect weather very soon.

Its lovely here again today so once my chores are done, I am catching the bus and going to see little sister and my gorgeous baby nephew :)

See you soon

The weather was certainly wonderful this weekend wasn't it? I'm glad your first BBQ cooking experience went well :o) Not long to wait until the next bank holiday, let's hope it's a sunny one!

You're right, if a bloke can do it (and usually a lagered up one at that) then to a woman it's easy-peasy! Well done, lovely pictures, ain't it gorgeous? xxx

Though I love Autumn and Winter and the the weather is cold and stormy today. Your photos made me wish it was spring, so only 5 months to go before we get there. Love the BBQ.
