Not entirely convinced we'll make it with lives and sanity intact.

Looking forward to it - both work wise and home wise. Work - work in a school and for some reason this term feels long, even though its only 6 weeks. Home - a week's break from the GCSE exam stress, though there will still be revision but DD will be down to just 5 exams remaining by then.

We have a night away in London arranged, with afternoon tea booked in London too, to celebrate the effort DD has put into revision and study this past few months.

I've been counting down the days since the beginning of this half term, really struggling at the moment and a weeks break can't come soon enough.

6 more get ups. The end is in sight!

Right there counting down with you!

For various reasons, tho half term has been hideously stressful so I am looking forward to a break for a week.

Hoping next ham term will be a bit easier!

It can't come soon enough for me. Let's hope for some really good weather. I've not much planned except getting my hair cut, eyebrows done, visiting Dm, getting Dd her first pair of pointe shoes and catching up with friends but I want to spend time in the garden and on the plot pottering and lying in the sunshine reading snoozing.

Yes please, I’m leaving at half term! Freedom!!! 🙌🏻

Lucky you - no half term where we are in Scotland. Eleven weeks straight with only May day for relief. Still, we get to finish on June 39th grin

One week to go, sorry LittleWhistle!

It's needed. It is DRAGGING.

We do have 7 long weeks until summer though when we go back!

I am hoping that it won't drag too much!

Oh God. I'm so desperate for half term. A Level and new GCSE-ers are driving me crackers!

Only been in the job since the beginning of this term and I’m knackered! Enjoying it but need to build my stamina I think! Thank God for half term I might have to sleep for the whole week grin

BossWitch Sat 19-May-18 21:08:12

Can't. Fucking. Wait. 1 week!!

Plus - even more exciting - after that, just one more half term til I am OUTTA THERE!

mnahmnah Sat 19-May-18 21:11:11

Oh god I need it so much!!!

missyB1 Sat 19-May-18 21:29:56

We are only back for 4 weeks and break up 29 June <dances a little jig>

thefishwhocouldwish Sat 19-May-18 23:25:14

I'm really looking forward to it - haven't seen DH since 7 April and I'll see him again at Dubai airport on 29 May. We also celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary on 2 June before I come home on the 3rd.

One more half term, a lot of packing/sorting/recycling/selling and I'll be out there too and starting a new job in an international school. Thanks to this job I can't even go out there for a long weekend and he can't come home as he's can't take annual leave until August (bit late by then!)

PumpkinPie2016 Fri 25-May-18 16:22:57

And I've made it! Finally finished and at home for the half term!

Y11 have finished today for exam leave thank goodness!

I am exhausts though!
