I'm one of those people who strives to conform to rules. I can't help myself, blame my parents! So what my husband and I did last night is a bit shocking for me.
We booked our family holiday DURING TERM-TIME.
It annoys me greatly that holiday firms ramp their prices up during school holidays. I understand the reasons, places are at a premium and so the price must be too. But what they are really doing is putting the average family off booking a holiday with them.
To cap it all, I will get the guilt trip at school on Monday when I have to go to the office and request the form that MUST go to the governers for permission to be absent. My son is 4 years old! He doesn't legally have to be at school yet!
After writing all this I now wish we'd booked the really cheap week in the middle of Summer term rather than the slightly less expensive week just before Easter. Live and learn.
