So really, although I had all these fabulous plans for our Staycation - trips out here there and everywhere - that have been scuppered by pelting rain and gale-force winds, I know the girls won't mind too much.
They're just happy to be with their Papa.
And so our half-term takes a slightly different angle...
We're hoping to hit the pool, head up to one of the London Museums and take a trip to Brighton... but we'll see.
We may well just end up making our own fun at home!
