I remembered it today: we are now in the middle of mid-term break, for schools. In England at least as in Québec it is earlier in the month. When used to work in schools here, I did not experience much: in my first job in an English school, I was only working part-time (i.e. on Monday) when 2009's mid-term, and my second school I only started working way after mid-term.
Which is kind of sad, because I think mid-term here comes at a perfect time: right before Halloween. I would have plenty of free time to prepare for it, to read and watch horror stories/films, to listen to spooky music, whatever I love to do before Halloween. Boy I would be an happy English child now!
And on a side note, it also shows how much my teaching career is way behind met: the thing about it I am most nostalgic about is the time when I was not working.

The best thing about working is when you are on holidays when others are working. I feel a sense of glee then, and love to watch movies in empty cinemas or have a meal in a restaurant that is usually filled in the evenings or weekends. Its a treat:-)
Ugh...here it is the opposite. It falls right at the end of the kids' first semester and the teachers try to pack in a million projects, tests, and activities right when I want to be free to enjoy the holiday! It totally frustrates me and usually gets me physically sick because I am determined to do it ALL, even if it kills me...ha! :o)
