Half term is…
A time for me to switch off for a minute.
For me to see friends that I’ve not seen for a while.
A time for me to breathe.
Time to get creative.
An opportunity for me to read all of the books.
The time I spend with my family.
A time to reflect.
Breakfasts and lie ins.
Laughter and relaxation.
Time off from being Miss Elliott, and being Steph again.
Doing what I want to do, when I want to.
Late nights (mainly because books).
Starbucks and cake.
Time for my brain to rearrange itself and process what’s just been happening.
A time I miss my kids.
Getting through that TBR pile.
Posting pictures from whatever I’m up to.
Seeing my goddaughters.
Sitting in Waterstones doing a bit of planning.
Sundays where I only blog.
Getting round to doing things I’ve been putting off.
Seaside walks and cups of tea.
Time for me to be by myself.
Realising there’s more to me than my job.
Knowing that my job is an important part of my identity, but not the only part.
What half term looks like is different for everyone, but I love a half term holiday. I love my job with all that I am, but I can enjoy being off too.
What does half term mean to you?
What does half term look like in your life?
Happy half term everyone!
