I feel like today is the first day of the rest of my life. After almost 23 years, I've parted ways with my employers. It was a little sad but at the same time a huge relief. Things at the office have been heading in a direction I'm not entirely comfortable with and I've felt little satisfaction in my job for some time. Definitely time to move on.
We had morning tea together and I received a lovely card from everyone plus a couple of well chosen gifts. One of the girls even drew me a little picture. It's not a terribly good photo of it (taken on my phone) but it seems we've cruised from Oz to the UK on our narrowboat! I might have to laminate this and take it with us when we go. It will remind me of my workmates - I know I'll miss them terribly.
And doesn't the new kettle look lovely on our stove.
