The Tarmac and Turf BBQ

Sunday 27th June 2010

What a fantastic day, 7 cars arrived at Tesco's for our run out. We left at 10:30 am for our run around the great Angus back (quiet) roads.

Our roofs were all down as the sun was shining (mostly). We enjoyed a good run and conditions and road junctions were kind to us with virtually no traffic to break up our little train. Alan kindly allowed Margaret to have her first run driving their MX-5 and she told me after that she had a great drive. We did approx 65 miles back to our house.



Once home I got busy with the BBQ's and Jen served the drinks with a little help from our grandson Michael. In no time all were fed and then we had a good blether. All to soon it was time for the folks to go but not before Colin (Alf) dropped in for a short visit.


Anyway thanks to all who took the time/effort to come out to play. Goodbyes were said, people left, we tidied up, sat down with a brandy and coke, put on the TV to see the last 15 mins of that football match on the BBC and you beauty England were stuffed!!! and "oot the world cup" What a fantastic end to a great day. Jen and I look forward to seeing you at Lindisfarne next weekend.

The perfect day: a brisk MX-5 run, a high quality BBQ, a laugh with friends and England getting gubbed. Great to see you all again and thanks to Tom and Jen for all the hard work in organising today.

Tom/Jen, thanks again for organising today. Thoroughly enjoyable drive and relaxing lunch with a good blether to boot. Capped off nicely on my return home with some alcohol, Sunday papers and the Grand Prix. Superb day and not a chore in sight.

Alex - you're a lucky boy, I had lots of chores to do before my wife gets back tomorrow. I've done all my washing, dried it in the tumble drier and got it ironed. I didn't sit down till 9 pm. Tomorrow morning I'll do the dusting and hoovering. Great run around Angus today & thanks to Tom & Jen for hosting the barbie!
