The October half-term is an unusual one. It’s both the last school half-term holiday of the year, but also the first half-term of the academic year. It’s not going to offer you the sunny days of summer, nor does it hold the same excitement as the Christmas holidays.
It can feel for many like a real milestone; but also the last chance to step off the treadmill before Christmas gets festively frantic! Our weekends get chocca and our family time dissolves, children’s clubs, juggling work and home life balance, of course all fused with internet shopping and planning when the post-man can deliver the parcels. There are so many things that hit the top of our to do lists that it’s all too easy to neglect family time just chilling!
So, how do we make the most of this half term? We need to keep within a good budget because November and December empty our pockets, but we also need to tightly grasp the last bit of sanity before the years out..!
If you’re struggling for inspiration, here at Strathmore House Apartments we may just be able to help; a mini break away might be just the ticket. A two or three night break away is sometimes all it takes to really de-stress and unwind in preparation for what’s to come.
