Back to school, relaxed and refreshed
I don't work for the French public school system, so I don't benefit from the generous and frequent "vacances scolaires" that regular teachers get.
I worked and indeed had class up to and including the 23rd of December. (Education nationale teachers would gasp in horror at that.)
Some of my colleagues even taught on the 24th. But I lucked out on that score, and was able to take Christmas Eve off, followed by a full week of vacation since my building closes down between Christmas and New Year's Eve.
That break was apparently sufficient for me, as I went back to school/work today relaxed and chipper.
I hope this good cheer can last me through the long, cold, dark months ahead
