My first day without work in 5 years. My gosh it feels so surreal. Couldn't believe that I was wide awake at 6:30am! I have never woken up that early on a working day, let alone a non-working day. Chose not to get out of bed - but then I did, thanks to some moron who decided to call at 7am to ask me what I'm selling my car for. *sigh* It's all good :)
My colleagues put together a video for my going away. With Juanes playing in the background, the video had lots of good wishes, photos and soundbites from close ones, edited well into a 7 minute clip. Cake, card, gift, flowers and beer followed. I bawled my eyes out. It's moments like this you think - ' must've done something right' :) Thanks guys, I'm extremely overwhelmed.
Quite busy this week, sorting things out and catching up with people I'd like to see before I leave (assuming that I'm leaving!) It's kinda cool how your stakes go up when you are leaving.
Decided not to have leaving do. Most of my friends don't know each other - so thought I'd just leave it at that. Besides, I'm rather crap with goodbyes, I'd rather sneak out and drop everyone a hola line from Spain.
Arabian Travel Market starts tomorrow. Look forward to going to it as a visitor for the first time in my life (as opposed to as a PR professional).
It's nice to be chilling. I feel light headed, fresh, excited though a bit lost at the same time.
Life is good.
