I finished on Wednesday and don't start back until 5th Jan - nearly 3 weeks off!

I should have worked Thursday, but the little one was off sick, so I spent the day moving all the toys & childminding equipment out to the shed.
I'd forgotten how big the room was until everything had gone!

I finish Tues at approx 5.30 but have only got one 3 1/2 year old so can put high chairs, travel cot etc. away after lo has gone on Monday. I have usually finished when schools break up, but decided (not sure why now!!!) to offer Monday and Tuesday - trouble is I have still got ssssssooooo much to do I wish I hadn't offered now, especially as I only have 2 on Monday and 1 on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!! oh well will know better next year!!!!!:D

I'm off until 4th too. As I have 3 children of my own I'm not moving the toys but I'm going to put away the highchair, steriliser and all the babies things! :) My plan is also to try and clearout toys this christmas and do a big trip to the charity shops. I have 3 bin bags in the garage already to go :)

20-12-2009, 09:29 AM
i finish tuesday afternoon too

i need the high chair and double buggy until then but the rest of the stuff can go into the sheds, too many toys to put any of those away but at least the rest of the house can be tidy.
i am going to put all of my work stuff into a box and hide it under the desk so noone ( especially me) can see it. and i am not toukching it until the 3rd which is my day that i have set for paperwork.

i really need this holiday and i am planning on enjoying every minute of it

20-12-2009, 11:45 AM
I'm working through, have Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years day off.

But hey, come April i will have 9 months off, on maternity! :D :thumbsup: :clapping:

I finish on Tuesday at 5.30pm and i dont return to work till...Monday 11th January!! Our schools dont go back till then so i just thought *** it i am going to take the extra days off too. Will be a bit short on the money side in January but the long break will be worth it!
