So that means schools and colleges are finished for a while, and universities have sent everyone home. The knock on effect of this is that the Metrocentre and town will be chockablock with people mooching around with (quite often!) glum faces as they do a little retail therapy.
Those of us who are retired probably shy away from these busy places - oh and that includes National Trust, English heritage sites and the like - and postpone our visits until things are calmer and everything is back to normal. I know dh takes one look at the calendar and shakes his head when I suggest we go out anywhere during these times. Let's wait, he says. Car parks will be full, the roads congested and there'll be kids running about screaming everywhere. It isn't that we don't like kids, we do; but en masse and often high on sugary drinks, they can be trying if not terrifying!
So probably this is one fortnight when we won't be out and about and doing things!
