What do you do after it has rained during Summer in England? Pull out the BBQ of course. We are not going to let dear old H20 mess up our plans right?

That’s what we did today after a downpour of rain which threatened to sink all our hopes of a BBQ down the drain, literally. Thankfully, once the sky had emptied, it was all fluffly white clouds and blue skies so the BBQ turned out quite nicely.

If you're a vegetarian, sorry! There is salad...

Now I wouldn’t say I am a pro at it all but there is always that little competition of who can get the BBQ lit properly. If it is between my siblings and I, then it is an easy contest but my dad likes to do it all himself so at times he tries to steal my glory! After I started it all up, he declared he had caused the BBQ to light up properly simply by fanning it a few times? Pah- yes, this is perhaps how men compete over a BBQ; not who has the best recipe but who has the power of the fire. Tremendous silly fun.

I tell you what isn’t fun though. The cleaning up headache at the end. Scrubbing the grill down and taking the coals out when after eating all that food you just want to lie down and relax. Torture!

        Ah, it’s never too late for food! *ponders….tea or coffee* (yes, I consider beverages as food)
        Yes, rain is good, but rightly said, not when shopping! Gah – and my sister’s buggy was a menace to push down the streets -_-

        I’ve only been a couple of times – and it’s always a bit squashed with all the family >.<
        Now I should pay for YOUR taxi!

        Regal, regal image! Ahhaa I shall have a cuppa in the morning, methinks. It's tempting now, but I shall resist.
