This morning I woke up in my own bed. Nothing terribly exciting or remarkable there however we've just got back from a long weekend away on a boat on the Norfolk Broads. My partner is pregnant and is finding sleeping difficult. That combined with the size of the beds on a boat meant that I spent time sleeping anywhere but in the bed. After a few nights sleeping on the floor of a boat, you come to appreciate the finer things in life - like a mattress and decent pillows!
With Coronavirus hitting, our planned holiday was cancelled and we hastily rebooked something a little closer to home. We wanted to make sure we did get a holiday this year because we realised that neither of us had stopped working since Christmas - it had been seven months without a proper break.
In my younger years I worked a full time job and then took annual leave to go and work in summer schools. This meant that the only proper time that I had off was at Christmas where I was essentially forced to stop working for two weeks because everything was closed.
