Ok so whether you have children or not I am sure you will be aware that today sees us beginning the start of the six weeks holiday.
This can only mean one of two things;
You love it or hate it!
As a child of course it's great, however as a parent it can fill you full of dread due to the cost of trying to occupy them in this crappy British weather.
For me I am lucky, Ashleigh at 15 makes plans to see her friends and generally it won't cost me the earth.
So here's how we shall be spending six weeks.
Andy has the first week off and will take Ashleigh to a few horse riding sessions, (Groupon, don't you love it!) as well as swimming and clothe shopping for holiday essentials.
The second week she has plans with friends including a possible trip to Alton Towers. (buy one get one free ticket!)
That Saturday sees her off to PGL for 7 nights to do a driving course.
Then home for a week, in which we have tickets for the circus at Eden Project.
Finally for the last two weeks we are off to Mexico, I can't wait!
Work is relentlessly busy for me and time off will be sparse, which I feel very guilty about. But the truth is with out me working we couldn't afford all the nice things so instead I try to balance.
So what are your plans for the six weeks?
Lot's of children activities?
Or avoid any areas Children might be at all costs?
