Tomorrow afternoon is the Village Fete in our village – tents are being erected, bric-a-brac sorted, cakes have been baked, plants have been potted up, games dusted down and bean bags/balls/bowls/darts located, the band has been booked and the archery club persuaded to come along, balloons are being inflated, bunting untwiddled . . .
But will it be sunny?
Now, that is the big question! The weather is the wild card in any outdoor summer event in England, our weather is so unpredictable. We're assured that forecasting is getting more accurate, but that just means that people might stay at home only to realise, too late, that it was sunny anyway! It's best to be relaxed about it and hey! if it rains, just put on your mac and wellies and carry on having fun. Don't get too serious about the forecast, as BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker demonstrated beautifully yesterday.
So, wherever you are this weekend, and whatever the weather, have fun.
