DD3 had a great school trip, and was laughing as she told me that it did indeed rain at one point; the whole group had to shelter under some trees but she was fine because she had her light showerproof jacket.
Object lesson : Mother does know best.
She now stands in awe of my weather predicting abilities, when even the staff believed the weather forecast and didn`t take coats.
Me, I just look out of the window at the gathering rainclouds and think: Heck, looks like it`s going to rain today ! :-)
