...the next chapter!
Today - life begins!
Yesterday I shuffled off the restraints of employment and today I step out into a whole new (slightly scary?) world where the main currency is not the mighty £ or the $ but TIME!
A friend just Facebooked me to ask how I was enjoying my first day of 'freedom' - my response was that I now have the luxury of choosing when and how to spend my time and that the breakfast dishes will get washed up at some point, not determined by the constraints of time left before I have to be at Mammon's beck and call!
So, yesterday was a day of 'lasts' - the last time I had to log onto a work computer with my code key; the last time I had to shelve a trolley load of books; the last time I had to deal with difficult and demanding customers........the last time I closed my empty locker and handed in my badge and key.
A few friends/colleagues joined me for a celebratory drink and a couple more joined R & I later for a meal - it was a bit surreal I have to admit.
But now I've turned the page and it's pristine and clear and waiting to see what new challenges await and how the rest of the 'story' unfolds ....
.....so watch out, world, there's still a bit of kick left in me, yet!
