It's the dreaded half term holiday. Once again I am in work and Master A is being farmed out to, well, whoever will have him.

Yes, I feel like the worst mum in the world. It's at times like these when I feel like jacking in my job and becoming another White Dee (seriously, how do these people manage to claim so much?)
