    My sister takes two weeks holidays and I take at least two weeks, generally three, so between us we cover three to four weeks (as we both must have the 25/12 to 2/1 off). Then we juggle between MIL, FIL, my mum and then I take them to work for a couple of days and then MOTH takes a few days as well.

    What is hard is then the cost of the other 6 weeks a throughout the year.

    Oh ok. Seems i get a pretty good deal with mine. I don't yours will end up costing too much though.

    It doesn't help now but come end of financial year consider changing your ccr to being paid directly to the childcare provider. That way your fees will be much cheaper.

    I was told the same thing only last week. You make your choice as to how you want it paid at the beginning of the financial year and that choice is binding for the whole 12 months.

    Such a PITA.
