bon voyage

Last night I had some friends and family round for a farewell party! I had the best time! It was so lovely to see everyone before I go away for 3 months! My Mum and Dad put together some lovely food for everyone and my Aunt made her amazing curry! Soon, the Sambuca and Tequila shots come out for everyone who was left and the dancing began! It was a great send off and I look forward to seeing everyone when I get back home!
There was one person who was missing from this night and that was Cathy! We miss you and drank plenty for you!

the beginning

Today it was my last day at work. I quit my job to go travelling around Australia for 3 months. I was unable to return to my job but I though the memories I would gain would be better than staying at a job I dislike and wondering what if.

Although I didn't enjoy my job I have made some lovely friends that I will miss very much.

My last day was very special. Everyone had been very generous and I had a huge collection. From the office collection I got Australian Dollars. I also got Australian Dollars from Di & Ali, Jacqui, Bou and Vikki and this meant I had enough from them all to pay for the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. Amazingly kind. I got given the office collection too early in the morning. The whole office had come in to see me receive my collection and card. I also got some funky sunglasses and a pink cowboy hat with corks on strings like a true Aussie hat from Pat. I was extremely embarrassed but I really appreciated everything everyone did to make my last day a memorable one.
After my day at work I went out for dinner with some of my closest friends from the office. It was a lovely way to end the day and my 2 years at the office.
I started the job on a temporary contract for 12 weeks to cover the summer holidays in 2008. After two years I finally learnt all the jobs that I could have and more. There was no chance of progression so it was the right time to leave, but it didn't make it any easier to say goodbye. I will miss everyone lots and I will be in to visit when I get back.

auf wiedersehen

Today Cathy moved to Germany. I would like to wish her the best of luck and hope she has an experience of a life time! She will be working in a school helping German children to speak English. I've spent a lot of time with Cathy in London at the weekends since she moved there so it'll be weird now she is gone. I will see you in December just before Christmas :)
I miss you already!

My good friend is moving to Germany for a year. Today we had our last day together before she goes. To start things off we booked a trip to Barcelona for Cathy's 21st birthday! We will be staying in the city for 3 nights from the 2nd January; what a way to see the new year in. We then spent the day in our town, drinking in pubs and in the garden. It was a lovely way to say "see you later".
I will miss her very much whilst she is away but I know I will be going to Germany to see her soon!
True friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in the heart.
