Please flatmates, don’t have a barbecue outside at 10pm. There’s no inherent problem with that, but when it’s such a hot day and I’d like to keep my windows open so I don’t melt, it’s very annoying that I have to suffer through the smoke coming into my room.
Of course, if you’d decided to place the barbecue at the other end of the back garden, this would not have been as great a problem. You were close enough to the house that you set the smoke alarm off, which should send alarm bells through your heads.
And thanks for the invite.
