... unless you are in the UK, in which case it is 'holiday' - our late summer holiday.
A whole week away from work. The Land Rover will be filled with liquid gold and the caravan hitched on behind, and we'll set off to park in wide open spaces with no TV and no computer.
But wait ... what will I do for a week without checking my emails, or Facebook, or Twitter? I'll tell you. I'm going to read, write, tour some local attractions, take photos and drink red wine. I might watch a movie. I'll get up late, and go to bed late. I'll take time for a proper breakfast, too. And dinner (that's the evening meal) will be taken at a leisurely pace, followed by a stroll around the local area to take the evening air.
When I return there is likely to be an update to the Yellow Wedgie blog - there is usually something to report. So, it's 'Hi ho Silver! Away!
