Well what can we say? The weather running up to the BBQ left a lot to be desired, we were even having talks of it becoming an ‘in-door-b-q’. The Saturday, well rain is an understatement, it was monsoon weather but not just a short sharp burst, and thunder storms. I trundled over to my mums, slowly due to the rain, to make cakes as it was close to the clubs birthday. Finally at about 3pm the rain stopped and the sun tried to come out. We all had our fingers crossed that that was it for the weekend and we would have a dry day on the Sunday.
Sunday arrived and the sun was shining, thank goodness, so we packed the car with the cakes and our meat for the BBQ and off to Dawns to help to set up before the rest of the ‘rabble’ arrived.
A great turn out and nice to have whole families there, the kids running around the garden whilst the grown ups of us chatted and ate, yes I have to mention it as food and Nick always go together!!! He ate 4 burgers in rolls (without the salad stuff – too healthy)!!!
After the BBQ we had some cakes and again Nick – he had 2!!!
Then we tidied away and people departed all full and content, when it began to rain, at least it held off until we were driving home and even then it didn’t come to much, not like the day before.
Many thanks to Dawn for being our hostess for another year.
Next year Rich and Seb have offered their home and services.
