|The time has come for me to start my descent from my life in South Africa and to look back on everything I have here and all that I am leaving behind. |
I have just two weeks left at work and just less than three weeks left in the country.
This week starts with the first 'farewell' parties thrown by my colleagues. (I think I woke up this morning with a lump in my throat and the first one is only on Wednesday.)
Perhaps the most difficult thing about leaving the country, is the goodbye's. I know I have made the right decision and I know that I have SO much to look forward to. The thought of seeing my family in Australia is so exciting, but doesn't deter my huge feelings of sadness and this stupid lump in my throat.
This week will be filled with lots of dinners with old friends and lovers and a small gathering of old colleagues on Thursday evening. Many of them I will see again before I leave, but most, I don't know when next our paths will cross again. Hard to say, more difficult to believe!
If words could cry, you can expect a lot of tears in my blog this week.
Looking forward to seeing Oz soon!

What's worse than waking up with a hangover......Waking up with a hangover, bloodshot eyes, and banana eyelids from the crying AND having to go to work like that!!!!!
I think I should apologise now to the guys who sit next to me - Firstly for the Moods and Secondly for the smell of stale booze and cigarette's.
(Yes mom, I am such a charming child)
