Last BBQ of the year

Last Friday I jumped in a car with Richard and Carrie and headed north to visit our friend Andy! Even though it was Friday evening the traffic wasn't too bad and we got there about 10pm and spent the rest of the evening chatting and eating pizza. The next day after we all got up we watched most of a rugby game, I say a rugby game because it's not something I really watch/know much about (I was anti-social and just chatted to people on Facebook and MSN LOL), but apparently England were in it and we won so that's got to be good :) After a while we started the mega BBQ and what a BBQ it was!! :D

Some of the masses of food!

I say mega BBQ because we had insane amounts of food to cook. Largely my fault for bringing too much (and things I wasn't expected to bring!), but although it threw Andy's food plans out slightly, I don't think anyone really minded, at least we had too much rather than too little! :D In fact we had so much food that when we lost a few, we didn't really care! :D

We had a few casualties fall through the bars!

Normally it'd be "OH NO WE'VE LOST SOME!", but this time we were more like "oh well, there's 300 more where they came from!" :D After everyone was completely full and we'd cooked everything (for consumption later) we moved back inside and spent the rest of the evening chatting and watching films!

On Sunday we watched the F1 and like the rugby it's not something I know much about so I probably annoyed everyone by my constant questions, but it's always good to learn new things. More amusingly I made some sort of comment about not really being interested in F1 since it's kinda of boring with cars just going round a track... and within 30 seconds on LITERALLY the 1st corner there was quite a bit crash! As far as I know noone was seriously injured which is obviously good, but it did bring much amusement to us all for the rest of the race everytime they referenced this initial crash and we saw the camera footage of one the cars literally sliding sideways into every other car! Around lap 30 it was rather quiet with not much happening so outloud I again repeated "Formula One is so boring...", but this time nothing happened. Boo :P But yeh I saw a rugby game AND the F1 this weekend, I feel all sporty and stuff! :D

By now it was early afternoon so sadly we had to start packing up and heading back home. We were lucky enough to have great weather all weekend and then on the drive back, about 1 hour from home, it started to pour down - perfect timing! :D Hope everyone else had a great weekend too!
