BBQ Report

So, after my previous post in which I moaned about it being too hot, the British weather decided to respond by giving us a grey and rainy Saturday. Thanks, weather. It wasn't too bad though. We were able to get some barbecuing in in between the showers and there was Polish fighting beer to tide us over. Typical British BBQ.

There were quite a lot of people there and it was nice to see some folks I haven't seen in a while, but it was also rather overwhelming. Especially since a couple of the people, lovely though they are, are very loud and outgoing. Not that that's a bad thing, but it is rather exhausting to be around.

One moment that still sticks with me is when my friend said "Ahh, I love relaxing weekends like this" and I just kind of gaped at him because I had literally just been thinking about how tiring it all was! It was still fun, of course. I'm not saying that I had a bad time or that I didn't want to be there, but it was most definitely NOT relaxing!

My favourite part of the day had to be the evening, when half the people had gone and those of us who remained played Cards Against Humanity and Lord of Waterdeep. I love board games and I really wish I had more opportunities to play them. Especially the BSG board game, which is always fun. Trouble is you need at least three people to play at all, and really it's better with four or more, and I don't know that many people nearby who'd be interested.

In other news, I finally paid eBay the 30p that I've apparently owed them since 2008. Never let it be said that I don't clear my debts quickly.
