LIFESTYLE: An indoor BBQ with friends

This summer we are trying to make a proper effort to make time for our friends and family and fill our weekends with love, laughter and fun things.
This weekend we hosted a little BBQ for some friends who we have known for a few years, but due to new babies and new homes. haven't had much of a chance to properly get together.

Although the sun decided  not to show his face - damn you British weather - we still proceeded with burgers and sausages on the BBQ - the rain holding off long enough to char-grill everything. Having a large home came in very handy, and as the weather stayed mild we were able to utilise the larger conservatory space.

We had such a lovely afternoon filled with laughter and smiles from the kiddies, and chatting amongst the adults.

These photo's look lovely, even if the weather didn't grace you for a nice outdoors BBQ your photos looks so bright and cheerful and let's be honest it wouldn't be England if we didn't have a few indoor BBQ's this summer haha

    1. That is so true. Just glad we had plenty of space for everyone inside when we saw the weather turning. Hopefully next time will be an outdoors affair! :) xx
