All work and no play makes for a dull life, but taking a well deserved day off is always harder when you work for yourself. You worry about lost earnings and work backing up etc and lose sight of the things that are important in life.
Having missed out on the kids holidays through a week of long days grafting, I decided to clear the decks today to make room for some halloween fun on their last day off. It's been more full on than an average days work so far, but doing some crafty fun stuff with the kids is something you can't put a price on. Might mean a few late nights playing catch up and a bit less money in the bank (especially having already been rinsed by them for lunch!), but it's a small price to pay for precious time well spent.
