I haven't, really stuck for time this year, missed a planned break in March due to a family bereavement, and haven't had a break since Christmas really.

Trying to sneak away for a week to my brothers villa in Spain near the end of the month, can't spare the time to go further afield, but I'm so busy and stressed out, seems I don't actually have time for holidays, but I feel I really need them - catch 22..........:rolleyes: Anyone else in the same boat, or are you all refreshed already?

Had 3 weeks in NZ at the beginning of the year, but apart from MtM not really much in the way of holidays since :(

The odd day here and there to go fishing etc. I do have a week planned at the end of this month, which will be very nice :) Not sure what to do yet though, all depends on certain circumstances after the 19th :rolleyes:

Had 2 weeks in Menorca, had a number of odd days and now have a week booked in Cyprus for October. I like my holidays :D

Aiden - you have to have a break, your mind and body need it. Just book something. I've booked October - I have no idea what will be happening work wise at that point, it may be chaos but I will walk out of the door and turn off for a week - it's essentail maintence, look upon as you would servicing for your MCS, you'd not let it go becuase you're too busy, would you - so book yourself a TLC programme ;)

Yeah, I have to get away alright, its been a crappy year stress wise overall, and the batteries are depleted at the moment........long weekends are OK, but you are no sooner starting to relax, than its time to actually get back to work........:eek:

Think I'll just book a couple of flights, and head to Espana - I've never been actually.......:eek:

California :cool:
Great weather, great food, great people :D :D
San Fran is a top city to go to (been there 3 years in a row now), LA sucks IMHO

Yea I do fancy there!:D
My sister is just back from San Fran and it sounded good, and same as you Martin don't really fancy LA :(

I seen Rail trips across the states one time which looked fab, but was tring to get them on the net last night, but their either too expensive or don't suit my dates! :rolleyes:
