Jayne looked out of the window and shook her head. Everything had been set for her son, Kit’s tenth birthday party in the backyard. The marque was up, the BBQ ready and the swimming pool full. Everyone had been excited and now the party was a total wash out.
A summer storm had rolled in; rain lashed down, wind whipped around, the thunder rumbled and lightening cracked. They had all rushed and huddled inside, the children crying and the parents uncertain what to do.
‘I’ll put a movie on,’ Jayne spoke, ‘and get some pizzas in the oven. We’ll have a sleep over instead.’
