What doesn't help is that my daughter left for Berlin at 2.30 am last night (school trip - back Sunday) so today I am slightly weary and a bit anxious, though I know she'll be OK.
I booked a last-minute holiday for Spring Bank Holiday weekend (week after next) at a cottage in Fishguard, near the old harbour. Hope it's good. I think just decamping to a new location is useful, it forces you to take a break, but we normally take somewhere in the countryside. I just thought the kids might like to be somewhere they can go and explore under their own steam.
