Flo's first BBQ at home (29th November 2008)

A quick snack and coffee later, I was out of the house by 1.30pm and went to get some last minute items for the bbq at Flo's place in Brooklyn this afternoon. Around 2pm, I drove over to his place and arrived at the given address but saw no signs of life from the house. Hmm, this is odd...am I at the right place? Rang the doorbell but no one answered the door. Weird...Rang up Rachel to find out if I was at the right house - no answer. Tried Colm - got his voicemail. Rang Kim - also voicemail. Where IS everybody??! Oh well, I'll just ponder to the back of the house and hopefully find someone there...

Ah-ha, found Flo and Adrian busy assembling a deck table and chairs Flo has just bought today. And then my phone started to ring - Rachel and Colm were ringing me back! So funny :) Helped out the boys fixing the chair as we wait for the others to turn up. Perhaps you guys should have read the instructions first...fixing up the chairs shouldn't be this tug-of-war mission...

Wow, you've got a massive house Flo! He's got a guest room that's separate from the main house and a large back garden - nice! Flo, you are in for trouble. We would be turning up at your house uninvited to sun tan on your deck, fix up a hammock to laze in and have loads of bbqs this summer...hehe...This was Flo's first bbq at his home - haha, I knew not only because of his lack of outdoor furniture but also because his bbq utensils were still shiny and new :)

There were only a few of us (me, Alicia, Flo, Colm, Rachel, Debs and Kim) this afternoon but it was very nice, just a small crowd relaxing and having drinks, food and chit-chat out in the sun. We had more salads today than meat. I think everyone who turned up at Kim's bbq previously thought we brought too much food so everyone brought less today - still sufficient to feed the clan and Rachel's dessert was to die for! So sinfully good - choc brownie/pudding with fresh berries, topped up with a dollop of choc ice-cream that Flo bought from the shops nearby after lunch. Evil....

Thanks for organising this bbq today, Flo! It was an awesome day spent with the gang and we need to have more get-togethers!! I left around 6.30pm for home and found Colm walking down the street so gave him a lift. Going to be a good girl and stay in tonight to sort out the tonnes of photos taken over the past few weeks - I've been hardly home at night!
