Well, I had a few days break last weekend. I have come back and my DS seemed to have missed me so is behaving for the time being. I am also fired back up to carry on decorating etc on our new house.

What does a break or holiday do for you?

I haven't had a break recently but I am very pleased to hear that yours is making you feel so positive. More power to your elbow!

Yes a change can be lovely. I usually end up appreciating my own house more. East West hame's best!

It clears my head. Which takes a 3 day break.

I should say it doesnt matter where I go either. Anything further than about 20 miles, and it is still a break.

Good for you rubylady little breaks can do you the world of good can't they? I'm glad it's fired you back up to finish the decorating and had a positive impact on DS too. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. So all in all it was really worthwhile for you wasn't it? smile

In my pre-Gran days, but with 50 round the corner, I went on holiday and within a year ran away from home! I went to live in Sri Lanka for 6 months that turned into 6 years and it completely changed my career, my outlook and my confidence. Obviously it's harder if married but if anyone single out there is hesitating, I'd say "Go for it!". It's what my son said to me and I haven't regretted it once. Good luck...

Depends on the break. My recent four days in Rome fired my imagination and gave me mental pictures that will never go away. And exhausted me as I was also taking a break from flu, living on adrenaline.

Breaks knacker me completely. I think it's down to DBH, who is determined to fill every second of the day. I swear he's an American in disguise.' It's 10am, therefore we should be in the Louvre.' Run around, no chance to study anything thoroughly. '12am, we should be at the Tuileries by now! Get a move on!' I would be happy with one big outing a day, he tries to fit in two or three.

I need a holiday when we get back.
