It’s so typical of the great British weather! It’s absolutely gorgeous all week. Come the weekend and the sun decides to take a break too!
This weekend was no different. All week it was beautiful. Friday I worked at home. Temperatures reached 25 degrees. Did I go outside and enjoy it? No! Why? Well firstly I had work to do, but secondly, I thought I’d have plenty of time in the sun at the weekend.
We had 4 friends coming to stay and had planned outdoor activities!
Firstly breakfast on the patio followed by a lovely walk around Stratford-upon-Avon. It was the river festival. Bands would be playing and a few little stalls selling a variety of goods. As it is held on the banks of the River Avon, it was going to be a lovely few hours relaxing!
Well that was the plan! What wasn’t planned was the rain! Not to be put off we all still ventured out to Stratford, after eating breakfast indoors !!
Dinner was going to be a braai! We had the biggest piece of meat to cook!
Just as we thought the rain was going to stop, it started up again! The Gazebo it was then. Rain was not going to stop 3 South African men from doing what they do best!
As we 3 ladies watched them through the lounge widows sipping our Gin and Tonic, you can’t help but laugh at the body language of the men!
One of them checks the heat of the fire using the hand test! Then another checks it! Wait for it, yep, the third one has to check it too! Just in case one of them got it wrong !
The meat was a big beast and a challenge to cook. The fire to hot, the outside would burn but the inside would be raw. The fire too low and it would never cook. So, as with the 3 bears, it has to be just right!
After a couple of hours it was done. Absolutely gorgeous!
Sadly we had to eat indoors again!
My ice cream cake was probably the only thing that was pleased about the change in weather!
You know, the weather may have not been in our favour but it didn’t matter. We still had fun!
It doesn’t matter how much you plan things in life, something always goes wrong! Take it as an opportunity not a disaster!
Don’t put things on hold. Adapt and have fun!
Here is the video to my weekend:
This week the weather is going to be unpredictable. Don’t let that stop you enjoying life! Embrace it!
Have a good week.
