These days I try to get ready for summer a few months in advance. This is partly because some things like ordering flags, leaflets and stickers can take a while to sort out and get delivered. It’s also because you’ll be a lot busier nearer the time than you are now. The weeks fly by and big events tend to sneak up on you. You think you have loads of time but before you know it you’re rushing round town searching for something to stick signs to just 10 minutes before the parade starts.

“Do you have any broom handles?”
“Washing line poles!?”
“OK. Thanks. Bye!”
Earlier this year I managed to pick up a bunch of purple umbrellas in Poundland and Wilkos are now selling purple bubble wands for 100 pence each. Soon I’m going to get some washing line poles and make some more signs.
