Dh was able to take a week in the summer sadly no more due to staff shortages. He's booked four days off over the half term and I'd love to take the kids away. Annoyingly he's booked his sport one of the evenings of the days he has off but we could go for three days. The drive would be three odd hours. He isn't remotely bothered about going. I know if we don't we could end up sitting about the house and frankly I'd like a change of scene. Two kids with Sen means I'm stressed a lot of the time. We can afford to do it. Aibu?!

No but neither is he. If he's always at work, he might just want to be at home...it's tricky. Could you compromise with two nights and closer to home?

Could you go without him, either just you and the DCs or take a friend or relative?

What's it look like next year? He should have a minimum of nearly six weeks holiday a year, surely he can take at least some of it in the school holidays?

If not, you have a case for taking them out of school and going on holiday during term time.

He just doesn't seem keen to go but he never is. I get he's not at home loads but we are so it's nice to get away. He's like it over every holiday he never wants to go.

I went away over summer with a family member in the end.

I just think it's nice for the kids to see as much of the country as we can. I'm even happy to drive. He's not overly adventurous on the whole.
