New holiday blues helpline
Dealing with the holiday blues is a flipping nightmare – trust us, we know. It comes as some relief, then, that villa-holiday specialist Oliver’s Travels has launched an emergency Holiday Withdrawal Helpline to help those feeling particularly blue. The number (080 0133 7652 – go on, try it), features a selection of audio recordings of classic holiday sounds; dial one for tropical birds and four for the “gentle sound of Mediterranean waves kissing the shore”. If you can’t quite bring yourself to make the call, we recommend turning your bathroom into a pop-up beach instead. Sand, sun-lounger, daiquiri, shower gel – done.
