For those of you that don;t have fixed holiday dates and can book days off as you wish if you book off the 26-28 April next year you get 11 days off work for 3 days holiday thanks to the extra bank holiday and the way easter and may day fall.

Break up Thursday 21st April come back Tuesday come back 3rd May, not bad break for only 3 days holiday allowance used!

Good heads up, thanks for this. Not really a "deal" though, don't know if it should be in misc?

If you go off sick from the 26-28 of April you'll get 11 days off and use absolutely none of your annual leave allowance! - if you're a civil servant, this means you can still take another 4 days genuine sickness within the rolling 12 month period before formal attendance action is instigated! And all without the need for a note from the doctor :-)

why does other people's business make you angry....focus more on your own life and you will be happier and more contented.

Christmas is over-rated.

Hope you get paid lots of money and have a great new year x x

I wish my job was at risk too! Would love the option of voluntary redundancy or early retirement, but sadly I'll just have to keep on working for a few more years before I can enjoy my pension :-(

Mine's the same. We break up Tues 13th (last day IN) and go back for just the morning Nursery session, Thursday 28th, then off again until Tuesday May 3rd. I'm hoping they move a teacher day or something, otherwise it means we come back from our holiday (visiting family - so it's not costing anything) just for a half day in nursery, when we could have had another five days holiday instead. I have always taken issue with parents who take their children out of school to have holidays, but I feel this time I may have to join them!!! Fingers crossed the school sees sense and moves a teacher day, otherwise I fear there may only be teachers there, no kids at all!

You should be able to add your paternity leave to any holiday you would automatically get - like Bank Holidays.

Think I may carry 3 days forward from this year and book them in this period, leaves me still with 14 days to take before Christmas :D
#31
my boss is so mean he blocks all holidays either side of bank holidays as he takes his then , 30 employees have work around him , and makes us sign a contract, that he can change our holidays within 5 working days of us taking our holidays, incase he finds a last minute deal for himself,
