DANIEL: #1--this is a clause (subj--this week; verb--is); #2--Good; #3--Yes, but this exercise is called 'complete the sentence' not 'add a sentence';-)

1. After this hectic week, it will be good to have some time off over the Easter holiday.

2. Because I am tired, it will be good to have some time off over the Easter holiday.

3. It will be good to have some time off over the Easter holiday and spend some time with my family.

JOANNE: #s 1 and 2: Nicely done; #3--your added 'clause' does not have a subject--because of parallel structure your have two structures that relate to "It will be good to have ...".
