BBQ weekends.

Monday, May 19, 2014

I'm British. I'm going to talk about the weather. It's in our heritage. I have to. 

The weather this weekend was just glorious and it was just the perfect end to week off. Which started gloomy both in the weather and in how I felt, stupid cold. We decided that with weather so lovely it could only mean one thing. BBQ. I'm not the biggest fan, well I wasn't but I was vegetarian before so I couldn't ever eat anything. This year I finally get it. 

It also gave me an opportunity to get a bit more gardening done before hand. I tided the patio area up and moved things around as well as weeding. Oh how I hate those weeds.

Gathering everyone together was just lovely too. Nothing like spending time with family.

My Sister in law decided that it would be a good idea to bake Cronuts (a cross between a croissant and doughnut). Oh how right she was. She prepared the dough and then we fried them and iced them. They are delicious but give me a sugary doughnut from the seaside any day. Don't get me wrong they were tasty but I wouldn't cue up round the block like people do in London for them!

I'm back to work today. Boo. Monday blues or what!?

How did you spend your weekend? I hope you had the beautiful weather too.

  2. The weather this weekend had been so amazing :D I'm extra lucky because I booked today off work and it's warm and sunny again :D Being able to walk around in shorts has just been so lovely!

    I'm very jealous of your BBQ, we don't have a garden so have been sniffing the air a lot and sulking!

  3. The weather this weekend was glorious. Nothing beats a good barbecue and those donuts look amazing Lucy

  4. Working today was so depressing- it was even warmer than yesterday and the shop was horrendously busy. Why are people on Oxford Street in 20something degree heat?? xx
