I've had a week off work this week and it's been lovely.
Initially I thought I needed to come up with all sorts of exciting, self-improving or impressive things to do; mostly so that when someone asked me what I did I would have something decent to say.
I think I do that too much: do things so that I can sound impressive when I'm talking to others.
But not this week!
I'm feeling much more relaxed than anytime in the last few months, I've finally caught up on sleep, caught up on TV, caught up on talking to my family, caught up on spending time with my Mum, caught up on fresh air and sunshine, restarted going climbing, got around to making some jewellery from precious metal clay 7 years after buying the stuff. And I feel good.
When someone asks me what I did I'll probably say "Not a lot, just chilled out", but in truth this has been the most impressive, the most successful and basically the nicest holiday I've had in a long time.
Don't underestimate a week spent at home!
