Two mums have given new meaning to the school run – dropping their kids off and jetting off to Ibiza for a 24-hour birthday trip.
Single mum-of-two, Michelle Tocchini and her pal Tanya McElligott, both 38, managed the incredibly quick getaway earlier this month.
Michelle, a beautician, and Tanya, a hairdresser, dropped their kids off at school on October 17.
They caught a Ryanair flight from Stansted that same afternoon – and when they landed partied until the early hours before spending the next day recovering by the pool.
And the pair – who were celebrating Michelle’s birthday – were back and ready to brace another school drop off on October 19th, reports MailOnline.

Michelle said: “Our time was so limited, without much childcare, so it worked really well.
“It was just like going to London for a big night out – but we would have spent more money there without even leaving the UK.”
She added: “I do like doing things spontaneously but my hands are tied more because of my children.”
The two mums, from Hereford, managed to find flights and accommodation on an absolute shoestring – setting them back just £81 each.
The Ryanair flights were £48 return and the hotel £33 a night including breakfast.
They now say they’re planning to do it all again – but next time in Amsterdam.

Michelle and her friend had read a similar story about a 24-getaway and were inspired.
The quick getaway follows the journeys of two other mums who had the day off of their lives when they popped over to Lanzarote for a wild day out for just £23.
After making their kids’ packed lunches, the pair set off for the round trip of 2,500 miles and were back in bed by 12.30am the following morning.
Mother-of-four Rebecca, 38, wrote: “Well my weekend’s on the up because I’ve just booked a £23 flight to Spain for the day to blow off the January blues – me and the bestie – the packed lunch is made for the kids on Monday and I’ll be back at midnight!”
With the flights costing less than a train from Liverpool to Sheffield, the pair enjoyed several cocktails together and had brunch followed by a dip in the sea.
