(no subject)

I am very slow and confused about working out my holiday plans for this year.
Partly this is because they've been playing about with our holidays, so that we now have fewer fixed public holidays and more plain holiday days, which was only decided last week - and although I can see this is probably a good thing in general (because the University's stray May and September holidays didn't even match with Edinburgh council's, never mind anyone else's, and although I'm all for local variation that's going a bit far) I think it's a bad thing for me, because it removes the times (in the middle of busy periods) when you know that you can't be in work and have to go off and plan an adventure instead.
And partly because there would usually be a family Easter trip planned by now, and there isn't, and I don't know if there's going to be, so I don't know if I need to plan something for myself instead.
Or really just because I'm being slow and confused about everything.

I'm quite tempted to see if I can head off to Menorca and Barcelona in the Easter holidays, but I'm not sure if it's a good time. Although if not, it suddenly occurred to me that Easter in Leuven (to see other people dance) could be quite fun - although I'm not sure if there are other places around there I want to go to, and it's a waste of the continent not to go places on a train.

Also, I still have the stealth cold - I've felt for more than two weeks now like I was getting a cold, and never quite managed to get it - and I really wish it would go away.
