I have just taken the two weeks over Easter off from Mushroom Soufflé and loved every minute of it! Well, that is after I’ve panicked about making sure my extremely capable holiday cover and team member Ali had instructions to cover every eventuality including the end of the world.
I know I’m not the only control freak who breaks out in a cold sweat at the thought of leaving their baby in the hands of someone else (because that little voice tells us no one can do it as well as we can).
I know I’m not the only saddo (although I like to think of it more as ‘dedicated’) who for the first few days wakes up and still debates quickly checking emails even though we know we aren’t working and they are being checked by someone else.
But once over it that holiday feeling kicked in with a three day street dance workshop in High Wycombe . Seriously I can’t think about work and dance at the same time unless I want to fall flat on my face 🙂
The rest of the holiday has been four days down in Southsea, Portsmouth which I would recommend to anyone and lots of catching up with friends. As a result I feel relaxed, refreshed and ready to get back to work…but I’ve enjoyed it so much I think I need to work on my retirement plan as soon as possible!
Do you take time out and recharge or are you married to your business?
