It's a while since I've had school holidays off, but a new job has brought these holidays back for me and so I've taken the opportunity to escape my usual routine and take a break.
I've visited old friends and old haunts and taken some time to do some thinking and it has been brilliant. I wasn't sure that taking a complete break was the right thing to do, there are lots of jobs that need doing at home and I have lots of work-related things to do, so it would have been easy to find and excuse to not take a break.
I'm so glad I took the plunge though. All the things that need to be done will still be there when I get home but I'll be able to tackle them feeling refreshed and positive.
Yay for holibobs.
