It was 06.00 in the morning on Sunday 3 June when I woke up to the sound of heavy rain. I knew at that moment that my idea of having a street party to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee with our village neighbours was more fantasy than reality. Why does the British weather always have to spoil our plans and ruin everything?
