Thinking about summer holidays now
Assuming my wife gets the bonus she's been promised, the idea being kicked around is that she goes to Australia for maybe 10 days and I take my kid to the seaside whilst she's there. I don't want to go anyway, and the money we'd save by my not going would amply cover not only my seaside jaunt but a whole other luxury hol for the pair of us another time. I rather fancy Sardinia.

She gets two whole weeks more leave a year than I do :(

Trust you to spend ten whole days without your wife dropping the kids off at the seaside.

I'm afraid that doesn't fit in with your ex's plans

Hahaha you are so right
Just last week I said 'I want to book a week away with the kid in the summer please. Do you have any plans, is there a preferred week that's best for you?'

The response was basically that she can't commit to any plans in case later on she decides to make some plans that would then clash with the previous plans made when she had no plans.

"I'll wait until you book the tickets and the time off work and then tell you that week doesn't work for me."

I will always ask first, as that's the polite thing to do
I always get the same bullshit reply, so my next move is to book the holiday and the time off and tell her I've done it. And tell the kid.

It's then up to her mum if she wants to tell her that she can't go, and why that is. Worst case I go away on my own, but her mum doesn't have it in her to actually deny the girl a holiday, she just wants to fuck me about

I like the cut of her jib.
