Ivory Brollies, Anyone?

15 Jul
According to legend, if it rains on St Swithin’s Day, it will rain for the next forty days. This isn’t just a folklore thing – there are scientific reasons that explain the superstition. Apparently, the position of the jet stream at this time of year means that weather suddenly becomes completely consistent for the next month or so. As I stare outside at the dreary, grey clouds, I have to remind myself of this gorgeous wedding and how fabulous those mean ol’ clouds look.
Yes, the bottom of my perfect dress is likely to get muddy, and yes, we may be lumbered with a load of supposed-to-be-giant-but-actually-just-slightly-larger-than-usual games that haven’t even been used, but sod it, we’ll maintain that stiff upper lip and have a great time anyway. We are British after all – we’ve seen worse weather!
