So................do I join the club????

Now that my son is in high school, his and my daughter's school holidays clash - a lot of the time they do not coincide
My SO says to me that this past October my son was on his own at home a lot over his holidays, or he had to make arrangements with friends to keep him occupied.
She suggested that I take him to SA for the 2 weeks in Oct next year. Spend some time with my family, and go to Kruger! Excellent !
I immediately call SANP and make a booking.
Then she says to me the next day that maybe it's not such a good idea. We are planning on doing some major renovations to our house next year, and we are planning a summer trip for all of us in the July/Aug holidays. SO suggested we waited until Sept next year to see how the finances are looking
She has a point. Sort of. But......

Prob is one has a month to pay the deposit. And there was not a huge amount of accommodation/camps for the dates I wanted. Am reluctant to let what I have go on the basis that I may not get again nearer the time.

@hilda,
@mischief,

I think if I had to suggest that, it wouldn't go down well
In fact my SO would probably :sniper:
Especially since it's not a holiday for all of us
