Here is our 2pm update. We have been sitting at the services in our little camp for 6 hours now and are surprised at how generous people have been! Lots of money currently being raised for Pudsey and the amazing folk at BBC Children In Need which is fabulous.
Good old British weather did not let us down and the heavens have well and truly opened. The weather forecast did say rain from 1pm and exactly on schedule all of our lovely sunshine vanished and the rain began. We have resorted to hiding out under some clear recycling bags in an effort not get get absolutely drenched by the rain. So far this has been unsuccessful.
But now we are going to go back in time a bit: We did manage to get this photo before the rain started! As you can see our camp is very small so does not provide much protection from the rain. People keep telling us we should have got a bigger tent, but it would not be a challenge if it was easy! Main use for the tent is to keep our phones and stuff in to make sure they do not get wet, sadly it is not big enough for us to sleep in!
Also before the rain we thought we’d do a facebook live video to all the people on facebook who regularly support us. We also learnt something very important today. When we film for youtube we have to have the camera landscape but for facebook live it needs to be portrait. Who knew! This means you’ll have to turn your head 90 degrees to watch us. We apologise and will not make this mistake again! Also this sadly means you can’t fullscreen us, but that’s ok because we look better from further away! As you can see it was very sunny here before the rain appeared! Hence the sunglasses!
Even with the rain we are still smiling! See you all soon for another update and thank you for all your donations so far!
