Yesterday was a day of almost continual rain. Younger daughter suddenly remembered she had a party to go to. Older daughter didn't want a ticket anyway so wasn't due to join us. Farmer husband had declared the previous day that if the forecasted rain came he was staying at home. So that left me. Finally out of 7 of us 3 of us actually braved it. We disbanded the picnic idea and arrived armed with coats, rugs and umbrellas.
The trusty volunteers awaited us and made quite a point of writing DNA by the four who didn't come. I'm sure they couldn't have been the only ones!
The setting for the play was fabulous with the house as a backdrop. It became increasingly atmospheric as the evening progressed.
It was not long before the umbrellas went up.
Fortunately people were considerate enough to drop the brollies before the performance started despite the pouring rain. We were lucky enough to be at the back so were able to keep ours up. The actors had no protection from the rain and gave an admirable performance. Luckily it stopped raining for the last half which lifted people's spirits considerably.
I was glad to get home and climb into my warm bed!
