Am I wrong here?

In 2006-2007 I was unfairly accused of child abduction. Mt ex made everything up and I could not prove my story enough therefore my son and I had to return to "the family" home in south Italy. It was a horrendous 1 year 9 1/2 days but in that period I managed to win full custody of our son and the right to return to UK.
In 2011-12 after moving to UK he went for a joint residency order and again he lost. The order states he has our son alternative weekends and half all the school holidays.
What I need to know is although up to now we split each holiday down the middle then he always takes more so he can go away to italy could half the school hols mean half of all the holds in total?
The reason why is because I wish to take My son to thailand in the easter holidays so would need to take the full 2 weeks holiday. My ex has done this a few times and also christmas holidays at my consent but he refuses point blank to do the same to me.
Now he threatens me with the abduction ruling again and breach of custody and says he will take me back to court.
The residence order is in my favour. As long as he makes up for that week in another part of the year surely this would be ok. Ive offered him the full half term may holiday and told him to take almost all of the summer if he wishes but he still is not budging.
I would really appreciate any advice as this has bought up a lot of anxiety issues with me.
