the school summer holidays of course. From now until 2nd September I have my little angels(?) home with me. The good side is not getting up so early in the morning and the socialising with friends (when I'm not working), the bad side the squabbling, the fact that they won't go to bed so early because they don't have to get up for school in the morning and the socialising with friends (too many nice snacky bits to go with the wine)!!! Overall - my vote is for the holidays.
