Horizontal Rain and Degrees

Number one daughter got her degree today, so it was off to York to sample somebody else’s degree ceremony for a change. It was a great occasion and a good time was had by everyone although the experience was slightly marred by the cloudburst and he horizontal rain that we got as soon as we arrived which persisted until we left.

The ducks (there are lots of them about at York) looked like they were really enjoying the weather, but I think they were the only ones. After this lot my suit definitely has an appointment at the dry cleaners. In fact, anything with the word dry in it sounds good to me at the moment.
