emotions running high
20 Dec 2008
Well I survived my last day at work and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I didn't even cry!! But then I am seeing them all on Tuesday for a night out - so I expect the tears will flow then.
I got some lovely presents including a photo album with pictures in from everyone at work and one of the Judges made a lovely and very funny speech which helped lighten my mood. Then we went to Walkabout for a bottle of VB and that was it.

I had a really great day but I am glad it is over and done with!

Tommorrow is my last day at work and I am dreading it! I am feeling so emotional and the slightest thing seems to be setting me off in tears. The kids had cards from their breakfast club leader today and that made me cry as well. I just can't wait for tomorrow to be over and done with. I know Geoff is also struggling to keep his emotions in check and we both wish we had moved out as soon as we sold the house instead of dragging it out til after Christmas, but we can't do much about it now - roll on 11th January. I think I might have run out of tissues by then! It is such a weird feeling, being so excited about going but also so sad about those we are leaving behind.
