So yesterday the other half was in charge of the little people for only the second time in six and a half weeks of no school. And what happened?
The little man fell in the canal!
With his brand new bike!
Don't worry, he was fished out. He is safe and well.
They had to flag down a passing barge to borrow a pole. The other half fished out the bike from the bottom of the canal.
So all is well.
No problem at all.
No fuss required.
