BBQ weather is HERE

BBQ weather is HERE Posted on 09/04/20154 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

Holy moly you guyz, the bank holiday weekend was PRETTY nice. Friday was a washout – I was supposed to spend the whole day studying, but I think the rain and the drizzle totally dampened my enthusiasm. I mostly lounged about with the pooch on the sofa. But Saturday came and SO DID THE SUNSHINE. It was so gosh darn NICE to sit outside with a coffee and do some studying. Sunday was much the same, except maybe for the bit when Vulpe came bounding over to check out the lovely pristine white tablecloth I just put on the outside table and donked her mucky little paws right on top of it.

Cheeky monkey! I also had some lovely garden visitors throughout the whole weekend <3

But the thrill of line drying, studying al fresco and making friends with birds wasn’t the best bit, the best bit was when the bestest man came for a flying visit on Sunday night. I REFUSED to believe we’d have anything other than BBQ weather on Monday and by GOD I was right.

Vulpe (and even Miaowski) made the most of the sunshine. I can’t WAIT for proper sunny times and for all my herbs/salad to grow grow grow so I can harvest them for BBQ salads and wotnot. Usually I fail horrendously, but the sheer size of my garden is making me feel confident this year. Probably falsely, WE SHALL SEE.

Here’s a lil tip for you though….. Single use BBQs, don’t put them on wood you guyz πŸ™ I know it’s a shocker that I only just realised this at the age of 33 and 1/2, but boy have I learned my lesson.

    1. Thanks Lara! I think I’ve been so buried in my studies I’d forgotten to do any blog-procrastination (though I’ve managed every other kind…)

  1. Haha, nope, you totally can't put a disposable BBQ on wood! You need bricks! Vulpe is adorable as always and your BBQ has made me extra excited about living in a van this summer. I think I'll be eating BBQ food a lot!

    1. To be fair to me, the coals burned through the bottom of the BBQ so it could have just been some hideous charring rather than such destruction πŸ˜€ However, I am definitely going to buy a PROPER one before the summer weather comes back! I hope you have lots of warm weather to go with your BBQ/van fun πŸ™‚
