Time is going by so quickly, I can't believe how a few short weeks ago we were just going about our daily grind. We now have sold our house, bought another in Wongan Hills and I will soon be finishing work, all happened in just 3 short weeks. The culling of excess to requirements (that sounds better than, getting rid of junk), doesn't it, has begun. A kerbside pickup by our local council was timed perfectly for us. It enabled us to leave out bulky goods from the sheds without us having to cart them to the rubbish dump. I have quite a bit already packed in boxes, this week I will some quotes for the removal van. So, the countdown begins, 5 weeks till settlement of this house and our next one. 4weeks and I will finish work. When I returned home on Wednesday , after handing in my notice, there was a letter waiting for me, congratulating me on achieving 10 years of service and that an award was to be made in due course. I felt like a real traitor after that, no wonder I took the manager by complete surprise, seeing as she had sent the letter the day before. I had explained to them we were moving to the country and that was the only reason for resigning. The hard part now will be telling all my elderly clients that I am leaving and they will have someone new to come and help them in their homes. A lot of elderly don't like change, but unfortunately I am looking forward to a change in lifestyle for myself, so hopefully they will understand. Oh well, I had better stop rambling and get off here and fill another box.
