Whoa! it's gotta be hotter than the med here!
Have you survived the UK today! It's been amazingly hot and I'm so pleased it has been. Did have the chance to go away this week but couldn't go in the end, so I'm happy the UK has had a heatwave, I bet all the children are enjoying their summer hols in this heat.
So today after a stint in the garden, weeding - cooling down with all the fizzy, still and ice cold drinks I could find. Filled a bin full of weeds and the garden still doesn't really look any different!
This evening was a very special, last minute, off the cuff BBQ. I'd shopped for the ingredients for an old favourite, Spanish Pork. an all in one pot dinner, however when middle daughter sent a message to suggest a BBQ I jumped at the chance - well so did half the family.
I raided the freezer for sausages and burgers, hubby collected chicken wings, pork steaks and minted lamb kebabs, eldest daughter prepared potato salad and coleslaw and shopped for buns, cheese and BBQ briquettes, we lit the Barbie (well son-in-law did) and waited for the pleasing aromas.
Before long we were all tucking into a mouth watering selection of succulent, perfectly cooked meat and sipping on ice cold prosecco or beer - yes, and on a school night!
The sun dress with black and white flowers, I seem to pick these colours and patterns quite often, with shoe string straps and a very full gathered skirt this was just what the weather called for and I felt cool and comfortable wearing it.
Flat sandals were all I could wear today, these from Florence and Fred were ideal!
Off to bed now - sorry this post is so late ..... see you tomorrow. X
