It's nativity play time again. My son Jackson has been given the coveted role of third innkeeper. He claimed to have been offered a much bigger solo part but that he turned it down. He said that he didn't really "feel like it". He is four years old – God help us eight years from now. He's certainly a very different character from his older sister, Parker, who four years ago announced to us all that she had the role of Mary. We were thrilled and showed off to everyone until it turned out that she was lying and had simply refused to accept that she didn't have the lead role. "Don't put your daughter on the stage Mrs Worthington." Well, Mrs Worthington might have been persuaded to put a stop to her daughter's thespian tendencies but there's no way that young Miss Joly is going to be deterred from treading the boards.

Q. We are hoping to take our four-year-old son away for a pre-Christmas short break. As it will be during the week before Christmas, we don't want to fly too far. Where will we be guaranteed reasonable sunshine and some nice outdoor activities? D Elms, via email

Walking in the Peak District on a clear sunny day, stopping to admire the view across the Hope Valley and breathing in the crisp Derbyshire air might not seem like your average journey into work. But, for James Thacker it's a daily reality and one that he thanks his lucky stars for.

We're starting to tire of the Identikit spa experience. What is the difference between a hot-stone therapy in Hua Hin or Hampshire? No, the future of the spa is in going native.

Q. I want to take my teenage daughter for a week's sunshine during the February half-term. We would prefer somewhere that won't give us jet lag, as she will return straight back to college. We'd like to be near a beach, have access to spa treatments, and be able to do some sightseeing. We also like water sports. I hear that Oman is good, but how long is the flight there? Also, we would prefer separate rooms I'm aware that this won't be a cheap holiday! C Howells, Surrey
