For future reference, do not go to the local Air Show on a rainy day (or, crucially, a day where it looks like it may possibly rain) unless:
a) All members of the party are fully equipped for the weather including (but not limited to) raincoats, waterproof trousers, Wellington boots, umbrellas and well-protected bags and
b) All members of the party can be relied upon to walk unaided for the duration of the event without the need or desire to be carried (occasional lifting to provide a better view may be granted an exception, at the discretion of the senior members of the party).
Failure to abide by these guidelines may result in soggy shoes and sodden feet, lots of laundry, chills and headaches, aching necks, shoulders and arms, and a story which will probably be amusing after a few days.
While the chances of him reading this are even lower that of me staying up past ten o'clock tonight, I would like to say a thousand thank yous to the be-suited gentleman who was leaving the air show as we arrived and, on spotting K bundled up in my raincoat while I was still wearing it, kindly gave us his small umbrella. Thank you sir.
And so to bed.
