No problems here at Loopy Towers (just the usual leaky roofs), but School Prizegiving was fun this morning. It was held in a marquee. All fine to begin with, but after half an hour the thunder and lightning began. The speeches were almost inaudible due to rain on the canvas, and the man sitting next to me had rainwater steadily dripping on his head
Funnily enough, that is where DD and OH were on their way back from - not yours but a similar jolly event. I lasted 7 minutes in the marquee as (official reason) I wanted to check the state of the road and (real reason) I can't bear such occasions and the sound of people guffawing at their own jokes became too much for me after only 3 minutes. The other 4 minutes were spent trying to engineer my exit. Although DD did benefit in the prize department, she was clearly totally underwhelmed by the entire, soggy occasion.
