Not for the May holiday, we are hardly in between Easter and summer (two weeks for spring plus extra for Easter depending how it falls, then two holidays in May before finishing up in June) but I'd ditch the September weekend and take time off in November. November sucks! I'd also like the February holiday to be longer because Christmas to Easter is a long, dark stretch with hardly any time off.
I like the idea of a February holiday, it would be good with with my work too, and I always have to work most of the spring holiday - how selfish am I! I am starting to think that starting summer a bit later up here would work too - more in line with the English holidays, lets face it, August/September are often our best months.
Noooo! I couldn't afford to go on holiday if I couldn't go away early July!

6-7 weeks. We break up the last few days in June and go back in mid August.

That's true about the slightly cheaper early July breaks - I also find if I'm going down south to the theme parks early July is great, no long waits for any of the rides - good point loeylo, lets stick to end of June to break up but take the Eire 8 weeks PLEASE!!!

My son still has another week off, this is his 8th week off, so by the time he goes back he will have had 9 weeks off school. I love our long summer holidays and I hate it when they go back, I am a childminder and work from home so all summer my house if full of kids then come september it feels so empty

It's so nice to come across like minded people not champing at the bit to get the children back to school.

Well we're on week two already, Ds is enjoying being back and I'm taking the chance on non work days to start the desperately needed decorating - meanwhile I happily made a note of the holiday dates for the rest of this year in my diary yesterday!

The benefit of having Christmas in the summer - although having had a few christmas's in Australia I have to admit to preferring it when it's cold and dark outside.
