There are three things you really don't want to happen at half-term:
Number 1 Rain
Number 2 Car breaks down
Number 3 Electric company turn power off (for whole day)
Numbers 1 and 2 have happened already, Number 3 is scheduled for Thursday... lets hope Number 1 or Number 2 have changed by then!
Mind you, right now there are chips in the oven and a nice den being built under the dresser, so everyone's happy!
