School holidays!

One for all of MT's parents

Well, they are nearly upon us again - anyone feel slightly like this at the moment?




What plans have people got with their kids?  Managed to get much time off work etc?

Anyway - hope you all enjoy your time together, make it through to the other side in one piece - I'll see you all in Berlin

    Oh lord - good luck mate!

    I've only the one (eight-year-old girl), but she has a habit of populating my house with other 8/9 year-old girls overnight - I think some of her friend's parents do quite well out of me!

    On the plus side I'm out of work so can spend some time with my little 'cherubs'.
    On the negative side I'm penniless so anything we do will have to be free.

    Cue lots of, "oh do we have to take the dog for another long walk dad"

    That must suck - I don't think kids (of any age) ever really appreciate how much things cost and just expect to have things paid for.

    Still, as you say, spending the entire 6 weeks with them is a nice bonus.

    I try to think of things id have love to have done and also a chance for me to get away with acting like a kid

    I love having Laddos mates round some of the stuff they come out with cracks me up

    'Marks got an Xbox thats been modded to play wii games,ps3 and Gamecube,his uncle made it and he is going to build him a hovercraft and take him to school in it"

    "Ross used to have a girlfriend who had her own car"
    (Ross is 10)

    Although they keep asking me to re-inact,the Family guy bird sketch in a public place like Morrisons while they film it for you tube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WNrx2jq184
    They want me to do the last 30sec of that

    Is that a joke . They squabble for the few hours they spend together after school. Spending 6 weeks with the little ****ers is going to be murder!!!

    Our school hols started almost 2 weeks ago.

    Have 2 girls, aged 12 and 17.

    The 12 year old will be returning this Friday from a 2 week camping holiday in Corsica where she has been with her youth club. Was a big adventure for her and nerve wracking for us but has been good I believe.

    My 17 year old is not "allowed" to go on holidays as she qualified for the Athletic German Championships 400m track which is in August. Her trainer permitted 1 week holidays but with a training plan, she decided before she was going to train running on roads/parks/beach etc she'd better just stay at home and train on the track. She's currently training twice daily.

    So this will be the first year where we didnt go on a family vacation together. Next Friday, a week after my 12 year old returns from Corsica, I will take the car and ferry with her from Amsterdam to Newcastle and stayy at my parents for 10 days in Scotland which is some sort of compromise and give me something to do with my holiday allocation as I'm not keen on sitting around at home for 2 weeks. At least in Scotland we can go for short drives to the coast/hills etc which is nice.

    And besides I miss the UK! (and my kids love it there too)

    How does she handle that level of dedication mate at her age?  It's a lot to ask of a teenager!

    Mate, I am not asking her anything. It's what SHE wants. She's FANATICAL.

    But the best is, she gets straight A's at school too.

    All she does is study and train. She lives for nothing else.

    The biggest problem is keeping injuries at bay.

    I know mate, was referring to her trainer if anyone.  Fair play to her if it's what she wants!  Shame there aren't more girls focused on positive things instead of Victoria Beckham and the like.
