I had just finished getting it all ready, the first guests arrived and the rain came down, not just a little rain either. In fact it is still raining now- 5 hours later. As I have no suitable outside cover we changed our barbecue to an oven-a-cue and still managed to enjoy great food and company.
The children played outside in the rain for a while, when it got very heavy they came in and made their own entertainment!
Lots of giggles and laughter for hours. Then when the last guests left they took themselves to bed by themselves. A successful get together I feel.
