Welcome to rainy summer 2007. Not much else to say – I can’t believe how many events have been marred by rain – the audiences just don’t stick around even if we turn up……and as for keeping your kit clean through several dance spots?

How English is morris? We received an invitation to a formal garden party which said, “national costume may be worn” and I wondered if I could turn up in my morris kit – but was overruled! Out came the posh frock instead.
