We arrived at My Beloved Brit’s sister’s and her family’s home right on the edge of London to spend a weekend catching up with the family.

It’s the perfect accommodation, and we get to catch up with our three nieces who still reside under this roof

This is a wonderful way to spend an English day, preparing Sunday Roast with family all around and good food flying out of the kitchen onto our plates.

Preparations begin with dad and the youngest taking control of the kitchen. Photo by me

The Bold Brother-in-Law orchestrated the cooking with much help and cajoling from all around.

It was a classic.

Can we have a bit of help here. Photo by me.

It was the best of Sunday afternoons, and an English tradition that is unparalleled anywhere in the world.

After the meal... the remnants of a pitcher of "Squash" a very British refreshing drink. Photo by me
