Do bad things come in three's?

At 5am The House_of_Fred started the day by erecting a marquee, all appeared calm, and The Wife_of_Fred was deciding how to move the marquee to its allocated position.... then the fishtank exploded.

Mmm, maybe a slight exaggeration there, but the front glass cracked, the water poured forth and we stood and watched whilst 150litres of water gushed to the floor.

Needless to say we are now trying to think back to see if this is number three of three calamities: we had the dog put down on Monday (1); we had the fishtank pump leak 50 odd litres on Tuesday (2); the fishtank glass cracks (3). If the "naughty or nice" fairies are watching, let's hope we get extra points from the nice department!

Let's hope that all could happen now has and that we can enjoy the Festive Season.....
