In one and a half weeks Australia will be on school holidays.
The kids get 6 week off during the Christmas holidays as we call it.
But for the kids 6 weeks isn't enough time off from school.
I must say i have to agree with them. By the time the holidays are on we are getting the last of the Christmas shopping done. Then it's a week the the new year. (sigh)
The I'm doing the getting ready for school shopping, e.g getting new school bags, school clothes, paying school fees etc etc. Which all takes time and a lot of running around.
By the time i finish all that i need a holiday lol.
