We've got another week before half term.

I'm in the very lucky position where all my parents are teachers, so ...............

I get the week off :clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping:

I'm working all week but as my wife's a teacher she will be taking my DS to see grandma so it makes it a bit easier for me. Most toddler groups are shut so planning trips out to the farm, library, soft play etc so should be a fun week! :D

I'm hoping for a dry week so we can spend most of the week outdoors :) fingers crossed x

i've got another week till half term!

but so far in half term ... on day off we are going to have family photos done! ( were given a voucher to do so for christmas! we only had them done a couple of years ago and so am not fussed about a whole family photo, but am hopeing for a nice one of my 2, as their joint school photos were not good! DS was lovely in one and DD had screwed her face up, then in the other photo they had swapped !!! )

then i am planning on booking my two into a day camp at the zoo and having a whole day with just my LOs, then i think we're off to the woods for a day, meeting a friend at soft play and then i'm not sure about the last day yet ...

I'm working Tue, Wed and Thur. One of those days I am looking after an old mindee which will be great. He is my DD's best friend and so it is like having a holiday looking after him because he and DD play sooo well together and it keeps her out of my hair, bless her. She just hasn't clicked with the baby mindee that I currently look after and it's hard work having the two of them together all day when there is no nursery for her! We'll just go with the flow when minding. On one of my days off we'll go on a nice trip. I fancy the zoo if it's pleasant weather and the Science Museum if it's bad weather. x

I have another week to go til we finish, and hopefully by then the new conservatory will be finished and me and the lo's will have an adventure
moving the toys into their new home, fingers crossed for them finishing by saturday.

It is ours this week too! I have too many each day to fit in the car so we will be making use of what is within walking distance and more importantly free:thumbsup:

Just the thought of a week without having to plan car seats with military precision is fantastic:laughing:

We don't break up until the 15th, so another week to go, then a week off :clapping:
I'm having my hall, stairs and landings decorated and new stair carpets being laid while I'm off.
Can't wait, it's not been done for nearly 10 years :blush:

I am working next week, Tues, Weds and Thurs. I will have 4 each day, two 2yo's my 3 yr old and my 7 yo. I am planning a day trip to a farm and a day trip to the forest and then a park and library day. I would stay at home but my son (7) goes crazeeeee and its easier to be out in these Feb holidays. Lie in tomorrow and we (my family) are off to London on Friday to see friends for two nights. Roll on Friday!!!

Our half term is not for another week either. I am only working Tues and Thurs as I have 2 term time only, 1 new child starting after half term and siblings on holiday! So I will only have 1 baby on Tuesday and the baby and a 3 yr old on Thursday plus my 2 so very quiet. I am so tired already this year so pleased I can have a quiet week without actually taking it off!
