    I do like that MasterCard advert that's on at the moment "School's Out..."

    The staff heurtling out of the building as the bell goes!

    It's exactly how I feel!

    I have the 6 weeks but a small matter of a wedding in the middle of it all to throw total chaos into the mix... The honeymoon and the enforced "take a laptop and you're a dead man!" rules will make it well worth it... Oh and of course the fact that's she's a lovely woman!...

    Is it bad that I know the weeks, days and hours till I'm officially non-single?

    I'm paid term time only but will have to come in to do some major stuff on the server, which will take the best part of the first week

    Depends whether you are excitedly counting off the minutes, or silently dreading each moment that brings you closer to the dread day

    The difference between those of you working and those of us not working is that you are being paid. While I get paid monthly, my salary is for term time only plus two weeks work spread across the school holidays. I'm doing 6 days in the summer break. I'm not complaining about being paid less, that's my choice! It works with my family.

    Kids here finish at 12 noon today! YIPPEE!!!!!!

    Congrats on the up coming wedding. The invite to forums members must have got lost in the fasthost fiasco

    yeah same here, a server 2008 + 11 laptops to set up, an ICT Suite to re-image, licencing issues to sort out, various other jobs, cabling installs happeneing, projector installs and so on.

    yup, I agree, I'm paid term-time only, as is the techie, so when we come in during holidays to do work it is totally off our own back to do; personally I take a hit of about-£2k from not working during the Summer holiday.
    Still, I'd rather spend a few days in voluntarily to save weeks' worth of headaches from staff complaining that the Servers / Network is down due to maintenance during term time

    Plus it'll be nice to set the Suite to defrag and spend the 45 minutes it takes playing my Wii on the projector screen

    Congrats I have my wedding in 23 days but I don't have any time off in the holidays apart from a booked week off for the honeymoon. We have 80 odd PC's to install/replace and a VLAN to setup for the kids to bring in there laptops next year to do.....hope we have enough time!!!

    "take a laptop and you're a dead man!" rules.... I like it, yes I will be abiding too
