London: Cheryl Cole is planning to take a sabbatical from limelight, which could last up to six months.

A source close to Cole said that the 29-year-old singer, who is a trouper when it comes to her work commitments and loves nothing more than making music and getting up on stage, bit now she feels that she needs a break and an opportunity to recharge her batteries as she`s barely had any time off, the Mirror reported.

The source said that from the moment she released `Call My Name` in May 2012 she was thrown back into promotional duties and toured second album `A Million Lights` around the UK and Ireland in October, after which she rejoined Girls Aloud in November.
