its 2days 2 nights with this pattern starting in Feb of last year. He currently stays 2 nights with this pattern working out about 91 nights a year minimum. During holiday periods he normally stays 1 extra night per week but not always. We have just got off a weeks family holiday with him.
Most years we have done something with him if we haven't gone away. I normally have him the extra night during summer holidays but cant always afford to take him away so have special days out for him. I think in total we have had 3 actual holidays away though. We wont be going on holiday again this year as he is away with his mother. The mother doesn't tell me when she is taking him away and I normally find out very late or through my child. I try to do things for him but like I mentioned the mother changes her mind and so her own objectives become more important. I would hate to pay for a holiday that my son wont be able to go on.
I want to pick my child up from school or home on my first day off (as I don't finish work until 06:00 with travel on top) and take my child back on my last day off about 19:00 to give him time to sleep for school next day. hopefully then this would work for myself getting joint custody. I currently work a 8 day cycle of 2 days 2 nights 4 off.
