CTL 3.2 Editorial - Where can I find the off switch please?

After 30 years of full time teaching this is my final half term. I will be going freelance in September and decided that the last half term break would be a restful one and I would recharge the batteries... all the usual clichés. Penthouse apartment booked on the East coast, books, camera... oh and laptop, iPhone, novel for Year 7 for next half term, books I’ve been meaning to read....Where is the off button I seem to have mislaid it?
