Saturday was glorious. The first true Spring day of the year demanded our attention. We had a barbeque in the garden, to celebrate a friends birthday, some good news and welcome a new season. And celebrate we did. Griddled courgette, green lentil and pistachio salad, roasted vegetable cous cous, potato salad, home made coleslaw and Chorizo chickpea and feta salad. Home made burgers, haluomi skewers, and squeezing in sausages on the barbeque. We made Sunrise Margerita's, marvelled at them in fact, and I spent the day wondering how I have functioned thus far without them... My wedding bunting enjoyed the first outing of its 6th year in existence. A giddy puppy, home brewed beer, silly games, heart shaped quiches.
The setting sun and the crisp chill in the air called for use of the lanterns, blankets and our beloved fire-in-a bin . We took turns to collect wood from the back of the garden, and also took turns to be bartender, our creative bartending options reducing as the liquor dwindled. We dragged the benches around the fire and passed around tins of delicious home baked marshmallow cupcakes and macaroons. And the moon. The dazzlingly bright moon.
It went on late, much later than we intended, but it was good. Chilly, smokey, tear inducingly hilarious and truly, totally relaxing. Happy Birthday Ozone. Congratulations boys. And hello Spring.
