Babysitting offer was before I knew it was a bank holiday

NEWS COMMENT: If we must have police cuts we need to know exactly why

Have your say

According to the weatherman (and he’s never wrong is he?) it’s going to be a scorcher this bank holiday weekend (apart from some rain tomorrow).

Can I hear a whoop? No, just me?

Moving on, I’m going out tomorrow night down Gunwharf Quays with the girls and can’t wait to have a few drinks sat outside in the warm, catching a few rays and enjoying the long weekend.

Being self-employed, you can often forget about bank holidays and I did this week – it was only after I’d offered to babysit my sister’s children on Sunday night did I find out it was a long weekend.

My sister was so pleased I’d offered to look after them on a bank holiday that I didn’t have the heart to then withdraw the offer!
