What I learned this week

So far I have had a good week and it is all down to the fact that I am on leave until tomorrow and the sun has been shining HOT!  I have shared it with family and friends which makes it extra special.

This week I have learned:

  • BBQs are not condusive to weight loss; not that I am trying at the minute so maybe this is an excuse for when I do and have a bad week;
  • Everyone loves a BBQ evidenced by 3 BBQs in a week;
  • Rachel makes a gorgeous tossed salad to be shamelessly copied yesterday.  I forgot the peppers and despite adding carrot as a good alternative I can still stand there and worry it isn't colourful enough;
  • Although I say so myself, the tossed salad was gorgeous and very popular but not as health conscious as it could have been-shame that....;
  • A bit of additional salary doesn't seem to stretch very far when you are buying a BBQ, a firepit and a garden glider-or not in my house;
  • Hubby is no good at reading instructions on how to build said bought items but I am;
  • You can get a fantastic BBQ meat pack for £10;
  • You can discover that Beautiful B has no idea how to eat a rib at the age of 19;
  • Ry and Beautiful B enjoy BBQs just as much as we do and love the older generations company just as much;
  • The addition of a sun lounger that tips back so you can 'lounge' in the sun makes for much hilarity when people sit on it and accidently tip backwards;
  • I am guessing that it may not be a good idea to sip cocktails on the sun lounger for fear of being covered in it should you lose your center of gravity which I am wagering you are more likely to do the drunker you get;
  • The handles of the sun lounger are at the completely wrong angle if you fall backwards on them but it does make for great entertainment for your guests;
  • Those handles do a lot of damage to your gluteus maximus if you fall on them in just the right wrong way;
  • Seriously brusing your butt makes for pain when sitting, walking and moving and you begin to realise just how much you use that muscle every minute of the day!
