Just a few hours to go. Nice to know the weather gods are on our side as thousands of kids and parents (and random other grownups) plan to queue up outside bookstores around the country.
My idea of dinner, drinks and a pub crawl before queuing now seems less clever. Maybe we should stay in, have a take away and take the car to Tescos and not risk being soaked?
No - to hell with it! The last book is worth some pain. And we can dry up while reading it in bed - assuming we can find a taxi willing to bring us home looking like drenched cats.
Or maybe the rain will stop magically around 11.30?
