Almost all said and done

So I've resigned and my current employer has accepted my 'two weeks notice'. It went over much more smoothly than I as expecting. I got in a little bit early and quickly pulled my draft out of GoogleDocs pasted it into our letterhead and printed it. Albert is techincally my boss and so I went in and told him first. He took itvery professionally which didn't surprise me and I appreciated it.

After nine he took me down to Anthony's office and luckily Julie was in so I could tell everyone at once.

Now the part where I have to tell all my co-workers the news has begun and I don't love it. I've tried to make it to telling two people a day which isn't enough or going to cover everyone before I leave but it's the best I can do faced with questions like 'but why?' and 'why would you want to do that?' and other such associated faces and frownings.

I have had a lovely saturday today though: got up late-ish watched O draw some figures to raise funds to take him to DragonCon. I went to a church organised Ladies Breakfast which was encouraging (imagine our identity not being linked to our physical selves, who we think we are or are not - but rather something known by God from before we were in our mother's womb! and that it's a constant battle for our identity) from there I went home and searched desperately -ish for my lost husband! Once I had given him up I found out where he was and eddie and I went and helped BaSiL paint parts of her new bungalow.

The best bit came after that when we went to 'The Famous Blue Raincoat' to max out on their couch infront of their woodfire heater and eat hot chips and drink tea. SO GOOD.

This evening I have watched 'Wives and Daughters' the BBC production of the Elizabeth Gaskell book. Very cute. I think I will go home one this is published. :)

Good night Wesley - sleep tight - I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

Walking tall

Hiding in the dark later though.

So I got a new job - and the experience has been a strange one as it's my first time having to 'resign' and face all that music and I'm beginning something I don't know quite what it is I'll be asked to do. Either way it's an adventure and I'm not sure I'm doing it pretty but I'm dragging myself through the experience as I know it's a good one and a life affirming one and a step forward in life which is what 'life' is all about really.

So good things.

Also I'm involved in a small amount of delightful deception at the moment - the kind where you know you're pregnant and you can't tell anyone except it's not that I'm pregnant at all and is more someone else's secret that I get to be a small part of.

About 5 of my friends ARE pregnant though - Kelly, Arki, Raven (my sister-in-law) and Jo and two have just had their babies - and obviously not pregnant anymore. So 5 was an exaggeration by 1 but whatever.

Working in the city will be nice - I'm gonna go look up if there's a park near where I work also - so for summer/spring days I can go sit outside. how cool!
