Time with the #thomboys - they really need a break from school and I'm always glad of it too. No rushing, no lunch boxes to pack, no bags to pack, no after school clubs, no prepping, signing,finding,shouting.... no getting up at stupid O'Clock . If you're going away, I hope it's somewhere warmer, or you have good heating in your accommodation you're spending time in. Have a happy half term.

Use our very own Pizza triangle, the independents do it better and it's always fresh
