Tonight dad put on a big barbecue and had friends of mum's over.
(Ed note: Friends of dad's, actually.)
Planning for six guests takes a lot of work, especially in the choosing of marinades, serving platters and all that.
So while the chair was pulled out to help reach dishes in the top cupboards, I supervised.
There was some very tasty looking chicken and pork on the go, which unfortunately I missed as I decided to come back inside. (Really, they should have told me they were going to stay outside all night.)
