Due to a concert cancellation we have $380 in jetstar vouchers, good hector help me trying to sort the use of it out. Needs to be done by the end of March.
My thoughts oldest child to grandparents, its been promised for the last 2 yrs (finances stopped before).
Then hubby threw in him and youngest as youngest hasnt meet great nanna for 3 nights.
Ok whatever i'm good with that.
Oldest child doesn't mind(he's a hormone/attitude ball atm) , ask grandparents they say hubby and youngest,their not so good with 3 nights -too short, hubby (typical) freaks out doesnt want to go now, NO one, waste it.
What would you do?
Waste the voucher?
Or decide bugger them all and take a child on a short break? (purely for their and your enjoyment).
I'm over being in the middle, i really just don't want to waste $380 odd. I'd prefer not to take a child to the inlaws by myself but it is an option.

We have $200 in Jetstar vouchers too also but are so furious with the airline I’m hesitant to book anything again.
Considering one way trip with Jetstar and another carrier home... closest capital city? Or you could take a trip yourself kid free.

My first suggestion would be a short trip (3-4 nights) away with you and your child. I did this with DD last year and it was an amazing adventure for us. It wasn’t just a little holiday, it was a great time for us to bond and just enjoy each other. I would love to do it again sometime soon.
However you have two kids, so if you couldn’t do similar for both kids, I would just send the oldest up over to the grandparents as planned.

How about... scr*w everyone and take a trip by yourself!

Oldest to grandparents sounds like the best out of those options.

Without knowing where you live, can you all just go away for a holiday somewhere else? I recently got tickets from my capital city to the next closest one for $42 each?
Otherwise go away with one kid if they want to. I vote the hormonal teen - don’t teens say no to most things?! I think that one on one time could be great. Not to in laws. If it is all too hard, definitely go away in your own.
