Back to work tomorrow. I was on holiday last week – except Tuesday. It's been good to leave work alone for a few days and I've busy in the garden – hard physical labour! Feeling recharged and ready to go. One idea I have been playing with is the idea of a co-ordinated approach towards sabbaticals. I had a really interesting chat with a New Zealander who is on a year's sabbatical from her teaching post. It's unpaid but she had been saving for it for many years. Could we offer something similar? Could we help people to put some money aside into a savings scheme to pay for such an opportunity?
