What a week. A week of lasts. Last Monday, last Tuesday … But in case it got overwhelming my colleagues kept it cheery. Love their card … not sure which is me!
It was a wonderful way to leave and I was royally spoiled with gifts, a fabulous meal at Rogan and Co in Cartmel and beautiful bouquets of flowers.
Aren’t the colours amazing?
Everyone was so generous and thoughtful. KS patchwork cushion in my favourite colours is gorgeous. I was bowled over.
I have had an amazing few days and been made to feel very special. Something I hope we all get to experience from time to time. But now I am ‘retired’ (until penury threatens) the card says it all:
Thank you Banksy for putting it so succinctly.
However I might manage a wee bit of time for this little one.
Peanut came up with her mum for my ‘retirement’ and made sure we had a fabulous night out at Kendal’s famous Torchlight procession before my personal festivities began. She was thrilled by all the floats and walking bands – this year decorated on the theme of Fairy Tales. She waved frantically at everyone that passed and had the sort of fantastic time only a 21 month old can have. That is some kind of fantastic!
Post ‘retirement’? Let the adventures begin.
Until next we meet,
I’m sure you’ll soon be wondering how you ever had tome to go to work!
You are so right. I may have to sneak some time in for work – oh those pesky bills! – but already don’t know where it is going to fit! Mx
Sounds like you were a treasured colleague! Enjoy your new found freedom.
Thank you. Plans are afoot…. Mx
I was going to write exactly what The Snail Of Happiness wrote! Fill your time with stuff that you really want to do – now is YOUR time.
Thanks for that lovely thought. I am trying to embrace the idea of having time to do the things I love and have more friends and family time. Mx
