    Letter from the headmaster approving our leave

    and

    Partnership bunfight/bloodbath for school holidays has just been completed and i won the 2 weeks ( after a countback on points it has to be said)


    So it looks like we are definitely off then :D

    May even get around to pre trippie - but for some reason the Trip report section looks rather full at the moment ;)

    Time to scribble the mouse ears on the blackboard and start and official countdown in the kitchen.

    Indeed it is never pleaseant - once a year and we all fight like dogs over the kids holiday weeks - there are 11 of us in the practice all with kids of various ages and we only let 2 people be off at any one time so hence the bloodbath

    In January I number each day back from the holiday on the calendar and then in the evening I put a Disney sticker on the day that's gone.:smiley3:

    It really was - we have some in our nuumber who are more, shall we say, vocal than others who always plkaye the 'my kids are older and doing more improtant stuff in school than yours card.

    I had numbers lined up for cancellation if needed(DC said I'd geta full refund up to 6 weeks before I think) so it really is a relief

    Nope the oldest partner is the senior one - in our practice though it is only for headings on paper or listing in the phone book, it carries no extra weight or responsibility

    Too true - for the first time it actually feels real and not just a lot of confirmation numbers

    Yes but not a Partner - she is salaried and her holidays are not dealt with in the same way

    So her holiday gets approved despite when others are going?

    Well then you can say "my wife has had her holiday approved, she can't go without me" :rofl:
