As a parent that makes me twitch.
Getting back into a routine is bad enough after 6 weeks off but to have extrra odd days off here and there would be a nightmare.
We've got 6 full weeks of school now and then a week off. I need 6 weeks to get my house straight and catch up all the work I missed the last 6 weeks.
I'm the kind of mum who rips bandaids off.
