2) Owning to point 1, I'm going to be in agony tomorrow. Let's just say that if I'm able to walk, I'll believe in miracles
3) Thick, well made trousers are a very good idea (I was wearing some!) if you do not fit the criteria mentioned in point 1
4) It is no longer possible, at the age of 36, to be tied up in knots on a piece of brightly coloured plastic sheeting and laugh at the same time without falling over and injuring a small child
