The farewell is over and the new job has begun

Last Friday was my final day at the job where I had worked for nearly 21 years. It was quite a wrench to say goodbye and I didn't sleep much that night. Although a long day I received lots of flowers, gifts and good wishes. This is the bouquet from the Company and the lovely crystal earrings I received.

On Monday I started work at my new job and have been totally exhausted ever since!! I work 8 till 5 with only a half hour lunch break so its all go! But I do get home a lot earlier than I did from my previous job so once this initial tiredness has worn off I look forward to more stitching time. Currently there's no great news on the stitching front but ....
this came in todays mail so I think my Winter Quaker Exchange is waiting for me at the Post Office. Watch This Space!

  3. I wish you all the best in your new job. You are certainly right that after a while you get accustomned to the new tasks and then the tiredness will vanish. Getting home so early is certainly great!
