    Half term in Bromley. Roads clear of traffic. Makes my cycle commute a joy. :sad:

    Makes mine worse, fewer cars equals higher speeds and more aggression on my route.

    I kind of forgot about half term - when your kids get beyond school age, you stop living your life by the termly calendar. It comes as a nice surprise when the roads aren't as busy as normal.

    My kids haven't reached that stage yet, so I didn't know. However, a few minutes into my commute when I was able to sail past some junctions that are normally choca-block I guessed that it was holiday time. On getting to work, someone told me that the schools are off for two weeks.

  8. I think half term here was last week, a few people I know were away and the roads were quiet. This morning they were quiet too but when I went out to LIDL at lunch time they were packed, a little worse than usual probably due to the bad weather.
     
  9. Ahem – for the more pedantic among us:thumbsup:: all of you referring to it as “half term” – it’s not – it’s the “Easter” holidays – ok ok I’ll get me coat… ;)
    but before I go – that means it should be two weeks off rather than one!!;)

    TC - you are correct, but [ultrapedantmode] those holidays are seldom strictly half term either, as the term is not divided into two equal parts by the occurence of the holiday. [/ultrapedantmode]
