Normally only the contestants get wet at Newbury's Crafty Craft race. This year everyone got soaked. When we ventured out it was just drizzling slightly. So we didn't take any heavy duty rainwear. Big mistake. It poured down.
We watched our little one taking part in the Steps Ahead dance routines on the 2-Ten FM stage with some trepidation due to the slippery conditions.
Fortunately, we managed to find a warm, dry refuge in the West Cornwall Pasty Company, where we could watch the crafts going past in the comfort of an armchair!
When we came home, before we changed all our clothes, we excitedly looked into the water butts to see that they had a few centimetres of water in them. Bliss!
