My kids are off this week.

I'd like to thank the non-parents for paying for all our kids, your tax overpayments are much appreciated... you losers!

It'll soon be that time again...

My kids have had 2 weeks off, and went back on Monday 16th - a lot of the Scottish schools have been off already, or this week, and will be back next week.

Anyone else tried the VR escape room? If you speak to the company directly, they'll give you a promo code for 55% off. The experience was amazing!

No it's not - the majority of them are, not all of them. As I mentioned earlier, my kids were back this week, after 2 weeks off.

Am struggling for North Devon. Welsh half term is 30/10 which has thrown up issues with our annual visit to Devon. Firstly our usual accommodation Woolacombe parks are closed. But we found something in croyde and now we found our usual places to visit...big sheep, Milky Way, honey farm, all closed arrgghh we have 5 days there to fill
