by Lesley on July 3, 2010

Picnic hampers can be fun, weather permitting of course, and for a change it’s absolutely glorious here.
We had a superb picnic hamper delivered.

Having not seen our good friend for sometime, we decided to trip up to London and have a get together.

We arrived on a hot afternoon, the garden had been cleared and a new patio set installed!

There was even a new BBQ, very impressive!

In the corner of the garden we noticed an unusual guest.

Not over impressed at seeing the BBQ being lit!

Luckily for him we were having chicken.

All that was left to do was throw together a healthy salad to the meal.
Oh and open the wine!

And so the end of a lovely English summer day!
