How to pretend today’s torrential rain isn’t ruining your holiday

Parts of the UK will today get a month’s rain in a day, but how will you claim it isn’t making your British break a nightmare? Try these tips.

Film yourself dancing in it

Really live out an inspirational Instagram quote by dancing in the rain like you just don’t care, joyously turning your face to the downpour and drinking droplets. Then, when you’ve got enough footage, get the f*ck indoors and spend the rest of the day counting your Likes. 

Quality family time

Photos of the family sitting around playing board games and enjoying each other’s company give the impression the rain’s actually been a blessing, ignoring the blazing row Monopoly ended in and the burning resentment that you paid £2,000 to be bored sh*tless in a cottage in Nowhereville.

Visit a heartbreakingly poor attraction

What’s near you? A wax museum? An exploration of the traditional art of basket weaving? The home of some writer you’ve never heard of, preserved exactly as it was when he died, not that you care? Get in there. It might be cr*p enough to go viral.

Live-tweet a box set

Turn being stuck indoors into a busy day’s content creation by live-tweeting your viewing of an entire DVD box-set of 24 left in the cottage by the owners, who use it to dump all their sh*t. Give up nine hours in when you realise all the discs are scratched and mixed-up. 

Catch some extreme weather footage

A clip of your tent shaking so violently it might blow away will fool people that you’re actually enjoying how unprecedented and exciting the storm is. Make sure you edit out the genuine screams of terror and sobbing children. 

Get hammered

Cocktails at 10am aren’t just for those flash b******s on holiday in Jamaica. Though they don’t follow them with a slab of Stella by 1pm, Prosecco from the bottle by late afternoon and whisky by the time The One Show’s on. Will be a hit on Facebook, will get you fired.
