Friday

Friday was a wonderful day at work - I only cried in the morning after Tammy started crying when I arrived in the office.  Phil, my boss, had organised a huge bbq for everyone in Engineering as there were about 30 people leaving that day.

Friday night we had a farewell function at the local Golf Club for the 8 people leaving our area.  It was a lovely way to end the day.  Many of our retired people came along and it was wonderful to be able to share the night with the friends I'd made during the 22+ years and my family.   I even managed to read through my speech without tears- so many funny interjections helped greatly.

Phil saying a few kind words about me.  I wore The Shoes.

On Saturday afternoon John took me shopping to buy a retirement present - she is so cute.
My sister-in-law named her "Pinky Tuscadero"
 After much encouraging/hassling from family friends


has opened on Etsy.
