Yeah nice views there - big reason why we got this house. Gets windy though with nothing to break those westerlies.

I went outside around 4pm this afternoon and could see white smoke from next door's garden, turned out to be a charcoal BBQ - with the rain falling down! :-rofl2

My comment to them was along the lines of "Are you optimists, or am I just a pessimist?":D

The way things are going, they'll really need to be "optimists" to do that again in the near future if the weather forecasts are to be believed.:rolleyes:
(Our BBQ is still in its "home" in the locked Ketter garden enclosure - and will be staying there for a few more weeks yet)

Same. Was hoping for a bbq last weekend but it was showery. And today it's cool and grey... Thankfully dry.

What is it with you Brits? :)
Yesterday, I lit the char-coal in the fire-starter at the summer cottage at about 5pm.
At 5:50, the first (non-forecasted) drops found their way to the ground - and the BBQ moved under the shed roof. (Wood, not plastic!)
The char-coals where distributed into the grill at 6pm.
A light drizzle ensued while I awaited the thermometer to announce the completion of the Rump-steak, and while that rested I did another couple of sausages for the youngest member of the family.
Drizzle continued, but only the cook got a bit damp running from the cottage to the shed.
Everything was served with a bean-salad, a smooth cream dressing, and a nice Shiraz from down-under - for the adults only, of course.
For the children - Ketchup and Pasta to go with the meat, and bowl of "must-eat" veg (carrot, tomato, red pepper, cucumber).
And some fizzy stuff, after all it was Saturday...

No, no, no.

CJ can't be a Brit .... Brits are inclined to light barbeques inside their camping tents: Now that is class!

WTF: to me (and for many of us in the UK!!) "having a BBQ" is about having an enjoyable afternoon meal in the garden under bright sunshiny skies - NOT whilst "enduring" a dull, rainy, drizzly afternoon "somewhere" and so dodging downpours on our food !
