And today marked the end of almost 21 years with the jolly old Civil Circus.
It was good to hear from those work colleagues who mattered, sending me good luck messages, all much appreciated. It was entirely unsurprising I didn’t hear from any senior management at all. In all honesty, I would have been shocked if they had got in touch. Sort of provides me the affirmation – as if I needed it – that my time in that department was done.
I look forward now to a new freedom to construct my days how I want them to pan out. To get on and achieve what I want without interference or interruption. At last, free time and free resources come together so that I can get on with my plans and ambitions.
First objective is to relax and unwind from the work ethic, the mantras of mandatory management tosh that never added any real substance. A debriefing of sorts. The complete dismissal of work obligations and demands.
And – it seems I cannot stop smiling.
