This was my last day at work - well, half day to be precise as I came home at lunch time. We had the usual slightly sick making presentation in front of the whole office - 10 of us who were in today. As I remarked it always seems like hearing the eulogy at your own funeral!
I got to chose a present from my employer up to a certain cost and chose a Parker fountain pen and roller ball and a leather bound notebook which were duly presented to me. My colleagues got me some book tokens which I shall enjoy spending at some point.
I had to hand all my office stuff back including my ID card of course and my manager has to make sure I've not walked off with the photocopier or office pens etc and that I don't owe any time on my flexi time account. In fact my employer hasn't yet paid me for the 10 days leave I gave up so they owe me at the moment!
I do feel relaxed now I have to say even though there is still a fair amount of sorting out to do as regards finances and making sure they pay my pension when they're supposed to and that the tax is right etc etc. What fun!
This is the start of a whole new life.
