Today was my last day of paid employment. I finished most tasks, and thought of Katherine Mansfield’s need to “leave all fair”. I think I’ve done that. My last act was to cut up my managerial credit card.
Final farewells said, I headed for home, with all sorts of new possibilities to consider. At my leisure I’ll sort out the wonderful cards and messages, and write some thank-you notes. I don’t think the fact that I’ve finished my 21 years at Volunteering Canterbury has quite hit me yet. Maybe it will on Monday morning.
“Next week will have some different days
perhaps I’ll simply sit and laze.”
