4 School days

I am not a big fan of the morning school run but I quite like Mondays because Alice attends the breakfast club. I can drop her off at 8 am and get away instead of having to stand around the play ground listening to the other mothers try to out do each other on their different topics. At the moment it is skiing holidays as there is only 4 more school days until the half term holidays there are a lot of ski holiday talks going on. Many are trotting off to the slopes on Friday for their week long winter holiday, skiing does not appeal to me in the slightest, I think it stems from when I was about Alice's age (6) and hearing about my then teacher who took a skiing trip in the holidays, breaking both her legs and could not return to school for a very long time. There is no way in the world I am putting myself in a position where I could very easily brake both my legs and probably my neck at the same time.

Now the Caribbean, I could do a winter holiday there laying on a white sandy beach, cocktail in hand, sun beating down on me....that is more my idea of a winter holiday!!

All that aside Alice and I are not going anywhere this half term holiday except maybe a day out to the farm to see the little baby animals and a trip to the cinema to see Sean the Sheep emoticon :smile:

That still seems like a very nice holiday.

We're getting hit here (New York) With a lot of snow as we speak. I'm predicting my little one will have a snow day tomorrow, but his winter recess starts next week. I feel this week is just going to be short. I can't wait for the warm weather to come! Hope you guys have a very lovely vacation!

I like what you have planned, the baby animals will be fun, but a trip to a warm beach sounds heavenly too.

Skiing has never attracted me either and I know people who broke their legs on such holidays. Another popular holiday does that does not appeal to me would be scuba diving.
