Come on mum

We followed the Italian peoplsees into another tunnel, this one was much bigger and darker than the other one. The were inching their way through using their phones to light the way. I went up beside them and touched one of their legs I gave her a fright, she screamed and all of here friends screamed as well, when they saw it was me they all laughed. Dad reminded mum about the torch on the key-ring, we went further in. In one of the tunnels it was full of moths, time to get out.

After lunch was when it all happened the wind picked up and the sky started to make lots of bangs. Suddenly the sky ripped with a big white flash water cascaded from it and there was a huge BANG. Mum and dad talked about it being typical “Glasgow Fair Monday weather” , 40 days and 40 nights according to the pepolsees on the radio. The rain pored for the rest of the day. Dad give me a brush to keep my mind off the Bangs.

Mum and dad kept going out side something to do with the electric fridge dad eventually gave it his raincoat, how daft is that a fridge wearing a rain coat! More and more big bangs, too much I might be a big girl but this is just too scary.
