Talking Re: Going on holiday is highly overrated....

Hope the boy is OK.

I hate holidays, they are always so stressful. Just think that you could be at home now reading cosmopolitan magazine in silence with the kids locked out in the garden (give them the hose and some shelter, they'll be fine).

At least give Mr. MH a "free pass", just tell him he has to keep the kids tomoorow while you do some retail therapy .

Have to say I agree...

Was talking about this last night and, as far as I can remember, the last 'holiday' I was on was back in 2002...

And, before AA claims that a 60/30 commuter gets a months holiday every quarter, that month home is definitley no holiday!!!
