Taking leave

We all have a certain number of days to take as leave each year. It’s a known number, and we know when they need to be used by.

For some (me) it’s quite easy to see when I need to use them – they’re always aligned to the school holidays. Whether I take a few days extra around a half-term or main (Christmas, Easter) holiday or work out a few full weeks, it’s always around the school term-times.

But what annoys me the most (about myself) is the inability to switch-off at that time, to let the thoughts and feelings of work stacking up for when I return.
