no more reports on a monday

Hello! I still have a little backlog of posts, but I’m trying to filter them through slowly so I dont overwhelm everyone! hahaha.
Monday was my last day at work!! What a strange feeling! I am usually one of the first few people in there in the morning, and I always love that time of day (almost as much as home time or lunch time -free food!haha). It is just so quiet and full of promise. I guess I’m a morning person -or maybe I have just become one! I’ve been at this office for 2 years in various roles and with the company for over 6 years all up. It has been fun!!
Check out my desk 😉

Yes, I have a wide variety of peoples photos on my wall- I guess I like a wide variety of people! Hahaha. And dont hold that photo of you know who against me 😛 Hehehe. Anyway, I have made some amazing friends working here (some of whom came along to my Farewell dinner the other night) and it has been good for me.

Check out the other side of my desk!

You can see one of my creature creations that I’ll be posting a proper blog about soon! It’s a racoon! Haha.

The head boss lady is into art, so the office has different installations and such (and its own art gallery just for staff)- this light near my desk is one of my faves.

So at 3pm I was called for a little afternoon tea and presented with flowers, cake and a big card with a gift voucher to buy some travel goods (I still need a power adapter and locks). Aww! I was so glad to see some of my lovely friends from other departments come along too! Thanks to Lucy, Amy, Jess & Linda 🙂

I think the three most common phrases with everyone else was how jealous they are, how much fun I am going to have and how I need to find a hot canadian boyfriend. People and their priorities! Hahahaha. Hilarious! Here’s a photo of the card.

It was really surreal saying bye to everyone, I dont think it is really going to hit me until I am at the airport.
Happy travels!

a long farewell -part one

I have decided to split my friday night post into two because otherwise it will be way too long!
Friday night was my going away dinner with my bestest city friends. Oh, it was a wonderful night!!
I will start you off with some outfit shots, I got ready at work and left from there (had a few mishaps on the way but thats another story).

Naturally I had no tripod, so you’ll have to forgive these shots. You get the idea anyway! I was wearing my ‘95% dress’ as I like to call it. It’s the one I almost wore to my brothers wedding (until I found my 100% dress that I was completely happy with) so I thought I should give it an outing too. It has these gorgeous panel ruffle things and the color seems to change from silver to blue to purple in different lights.

Dress – Myer
Cardi – Sussan
Tights – Myer and Sussan
Necklaces – Sportsgirl and Sussan

I like to wear two pairs of tights together when it’s colder, usually a colored one underneath (this time gold) and then a black one ontop with holes or patterns that let you see the color below! Yeah, I’m strange like that. Heh. But it’s warmer and it looks interesting!!!

You can see it better in that photo.

So eventually I drove to my friend Linda’s house and waited in the car for her for a while (we got our wires crossed and she is always late -whereas I’m always early haha). I have often found myself waiting for Linda outside but I dont mind as there always seems to be something happening in her street! This time there was a weird guy walking around and also someone in a truck pulled up for a while. Then I watched the birds and thought about what different birds I might see in Vancouver. Here was my view.

So then eventually she came and we by the time she got ready we left late and I was freaking out that the restaurant was going to give our table away (lucky we had booked) or start bringing out food and we werent there but I calmed down when we arrived. Sort of. Hahaha. I dont know why but I have always had this thing with being on time or early I think that was Mum’s influence. Reliable and all of that!

Anyway, so we got there and everyone ended up being late too so it was all good.
To be continued…..
