It's 13 degrees!!!! Someone on my snapchat is having a bbq.

I went food shopping yesterday and so many people were buying bbq food, drinks, ice etc.

It's lovely clear skies ... but it's not hot! Surprised I've not yet seen men walking around without their tops on yet.

I saw a man with no shirt on yesterday. Complete with a pair of shorts and flip flops.

I shivered on his behalf grin

It's beautiful outside today! Considering how bad our last few summers have been I think they are wise to take advantage!

We're having a BBQ. Been gardening all afternoon. We'll eat indoors though!

Why does it bother you?

HurricanePlait Sun 26-Mar-17 16:46:20

It's beautiful but still cold!

What hot weather? I'm still out in a scarf and big coat!

It's sunny, but it's not mega hot, there is a fresh breeze and it got up to about 15 degrees.

It's been hot enough to sit in the garden a few hours and we used the BBQ in the week, but did bring the stuff inside once cooked.

Have to make the most of any scraps flung man. Could be snowing or something tomorrow. grin

What's the point though?

A bbq is something to enjoy outside.

You're right! I'm bloody freezing! Mind you I am recovering from the flu

If you're​ in the sun it feels much warmer than 12c. And my phone reckoned it was 17c near us so maybe we are more justified here.

I like to see people make the most of things, be that the weather or something else. Nowt worse than a misery guts.

I saw a man with no shirt on yesterday, in his defense, he was fell running.
My dd is in shorts and vest shock but she is a northern girl grin

I like the taste of BBQ food so for me it isn't about being outside

Temo around here said 12 but was 16 in our garden. Partner currently getting our swimming pool ready and ive been sunbathing all day.
I dont see the issue if people want to enjoy it?

HurricanePlait Sun 26-Mar-17 16:51:04

Nowt worse than a misery guts.

Maybe I should put on my bikini and walk bare foot to the corner shop

Crankycunt Sun 26-Mar-17 16:51:08

It happens because the weather here is so unpredictable. A hint of heat and boom it's bbq time.

Whisky2014 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:51:36

And yy to bbq food. Id have it everyday if i could!

HurricanePlait Sun 26-Mar-17 16:52:05

Swimming pool in 16C? confused how odd

LooksBetterWithAFilter Sun 26-Mar-17 16:52:05

I'm in the highlands and it was 19 degrees here a litttle while ago. Even 13 degrees can feel warm especially after going from cold to warm so quickly. It's interpretation isn't it. Friends in NZ right now are being told by family 20 degrees is cold but for our friends used to uk weather it's roasting.
We had a rubbish summer it feels like such a long time since we have seen any sun worth talking about so I can see the appeal of a barbecue if I'm honest.

Crowdblundering Sun 26-Mar-17 16:52:25

It was 18.5 here yday....

Whisky2014 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:52:54

Why so grumpy OP? Its suunnnyyy!

Whisky2014 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:53:16

Why is that odd?!

Poorlybabysickday Sun 26-Mar-17 16:53:41

My two toddlers have been in the paddling pool all day!
