First blog post

This is the post excerpt.


This is a first post.  It’s a chilly and damp Sunday and I am binge watching Columbo.

I’m not quite dreading Monday morning as usual as I only have three more days of work.  The official retirement date is 30 September, but I have accrued annual leave.

It will get more interesting than this, when there is more to talk about!


Nearly there!

Today was the penultimate day of work.  As I’m such an anti-social person my leaving do was afternoon tea with a small number of colleagues.  It was very nice.  We had sandwiches, scones and small cakes with tea.  Gracie Ann’s is a pleasant tea room with views over the yachts at Port Solent:  http://www.gracie-anns.co.uk/

I feel stuffed – I ate everything but for a small chocolate cake.

It’s strange, but I feel disconnected from the job already.

Last day tomorrow!

Last Monday!

Today, Monday 4 September, was my last ever ‘getting up for work on a Monday’ day.  There will be no more waking in the morning unhappy about the rest of the week.  There are only two more days in the office!

My writing skills have been stilted over the years by writing of minutes, and I am hoping that writing this blog will free my mind from the constraints that I have been under.
