It's a Beautiful Day

It feels as though summer is here.
The sun is shining and we've had a family barbecue... you know what it's like... I've marinaded meat, made bread and salads...
 
 
I've mixed a large jug of my very special rum punch...

 
as well as making a summer pudding. But it's a barbecue... so Stewart cooked lunch!

 
But after several of those rum punches I don't mind if he takes the credit.
I'm just enjoying the tennis.

  4. That was a BBQ to be proud of and what a result from Wimbledon! I had a feeling he might make it this year.

  6. Why is it when men cook, women do all the work... looks scrummy. Enjoyed the tennis and I don't usually watch.

  8. Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day - the rum punch sounds gorgeous - best to let someone else cook the meat! Yeh and there is a British Tennis Champion - so all good.

  10. It all sounds so civilised and something we should be able to do so much more often if the weather co-operated. That summer pudding looks yummy. Have not had that for such a long time. I shall try and rectify that now!

  11. Sorry I don't do tennis, but I do do summer pudding and this one looks amazing.
    Good luck with the crochet bunting pattern, I'm struggling with the fist square of a granny blanket at the moment, so the jury is well out on it as a technique for me.
