The band played on

‘Singing in the rain’ was the number being played as I walked across the bandstand area on my way to get a cup of tea to warm me up.


A month away from the longest day and it was bitterly cold and raining today at Chelsea.


The sun tried to break through at about 20 past 8


But to no avail.  With true grit the visitors opened their bubbly and ate their picnics.


And the retailers sat it out – helps that these cushions are waterproof.


When I left in the early afternoon there were only four coats in the cloakroom, left by brave souls, or people who had brought an even warmer coat as well.


The cup of tea didn’t work – I had to jump into a hot bath when I got home.  Rumour has it that it’s going to be warm tomorrow.
