Therefore, not the best weather to light up the barbecue then, wouldn't you say?
Well, in my house you would be wrong. For reasons completely beyond my female understanding, my significant other is busying himself in preparation for a barbecue with great vigour and enthusiasm, the like of which is rarely seen for any other domestic task.

We always cook more burgers than anyone could hope to consume, enough sausages to feed a football team and then there's the chicken, the potatoes and (for my consumption only!) the salad! So much food! It is obscene.
Then you have the relish selection - onion relish, sweetcorn relish, jalapeno relish....I could go on, but suspect you get the point. Strikes me as madness to spend an hour cooking something manly only to drown out the flavour with as much relish as you can squeeze onto your plate/into your burger.
The final straw comes once the meal is consumed and the plates are scraped clean of the (vast quantity of) waste food. The penny drops. "Are you going to clean the barbecue grill love?" he asks optimistically.
Not a bloody chance mate!
When he starts cleaning the oven after I've made a roast, then maybe we can talk about it!
