Countdown to the Big R

It has been a week of food and farewells at work.   With the handover pretty well complete I am in the process of writing my final email and on Friday I will say goodbye to my working life.
The managers kindly bought this super sweet cake  and insisted on a photograph!  what an awkward pose:-)

Both the DBEM and I are looking forward to the start of a new life but I can assure you that next week will certainly be less food for me!

  4. Oh my Margaret, I didn't realise that the date was so close. I'm sure you'll be looking forward to Friday - I know that your mum will most certainly enjoy seeing more of you at home.
    Take care and enjoy your last few working days.
