Philmophlegm has made greatly mock of me today as having got back drenched, I changed into a large blue hooded garment which he thinks makes me look like a Blue Wizard. I don't mind looking like a Blue Wizard. I'm warm.
*edit* - I did have to walk them, they started agitating and wanting to go out. But they were at least more or less content with a brief trot down the lane and back, and the clouds had rolled away and the stars had come out, so it was rather lovely.
