The end of an Era ...

Beautiful Bouquet from Work Mates
That's how is was explained to me today by one of the staff members, and a very good friend of mine, when I left work for the last time.  Today was my final day at Booths in Penrith after three years on the tills.  I have met some wonderful customers and worked with an amazing group of people whom I shall all miss very much.  I'm not sure if it's the end of an era, more like the beginning of the rest of my life in retirement.

This is the lovely arrangement of flowers I received today from the gang at work.  I also received some lovely cards both from work mates and customers.  When I arrived home my husband had a lovely vase full of roses to cheer me up.  I will admit, I'm not sad for leaving as I will always be able to go to the store and shop, and chat, and laugh and visit with all the people who have made the last three years so much fun.

So now it's time to rethink my days, reschedule my hours, and enjoy my time while the minutes tick by, resting and relaxing to keep this health issue under control.

As they say, so little time, so much to do.  I'm pleased to have been able to finish two baby quilts and get them delivered to the parents to be.  These were for two of my friends at work, Shane and his partner Stephanie, and Annie and her husband Tom.  I wish them all the best.

And last but not least for this evenings entries, a photo of the cards received from my friends at work.  And yes, Natalie, a very appropriate card indeed.

Cards from Work.

So time to get my thinking cap on and get some items made for the first of three craft fairs I will be doing this year.

Take care all my buddies at work, will see you all very soon.  I will eventually run out of potatoes and fresh veggies.  Lots of love to you all.
