We did have our BBQ

                         

                 

Sunday the day we planned our BBQ  turned out to be a beautiful day ~ So the Children got to have a swim and it was nice to sit and enjoy the Sunshine ~

Thirteen of the villagers opened their gardens to the public ~ so I left the BBQ to go help my friend who had opened her Garden which is beautiful ~ this time I took the entrance fee's which was more interesting than folding raffle tickets :o)

The Village was packed with visitors many more than in past years ~ of course the lovely day helped ~ "C" my friend had baked cakes and scones the Kitchen table was full ~ and she was kept very busy serving the visitors ~

I have been told that over £2,000 was raised ~ so the Day was a good one and once again the Church benefits ~

When I arrived back home Lyn had cooked us all a Sunday Roast Dinner ~ Chicken with all the trimmings ~ Fresh Fruit and Icecream for sweet ~ there were Thirteen of us all together as a friend had brought a friend along with him ~ but it was a good day all in all ~

 

Tomorrow 22nd July my Journal will be 3 Years old ~ the time has just flown past ~ cannot imagine life without my Journal :o)~

It's nice that you had the good weather for your day.  How wonderful that people open their own private gardens for charity.  Family and friends getting together is always nice.  'On Ya'- ma
