It’s the last day of school here in Bologna, so my kids dragged themselves out of bed with a little more enthusiasm than usual.
If you work, it might also be your last day in the office before the winter break.
But that does mean there’s a danger that things may drag.
Plus there’s a risk of anti-climax when you do finally clock off.
There’s the worry that the sensation of FINALLY having reached the Christmas / New Year break won’t be such a huge relief as you’d imagined.
I’ve always found that on the last day of whatever, the trick is to distract yourself.
So here we are today to help with precisely that: read on for lots of interesting stuff to click on!
Two new articles to read
First off, I’ve got links to two articles published this week on our Italian school’s website:
Over at Madrelingua, we’re in the final throes of our ‘best offer of the year’, hence all the articles.
