I Was Swallowed By A Hippo

So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Adieu #1

I feel very strange. I was fighting back the tears walking through the revolving door this morning (getting in stuck in it one last special time. FFS)  but pulled myself together for the obligatory presentation. It was very sweet. Not least because of my fabulous leaving pressie of Orla Kiely cake tins. I don’t think the men in the room shared my excitement. I was also given a very special present by a dear colleague with whom I’ve had some ups and downs*. She gave me some beautiful birchwood crochet hooks. I was SO touched. She also had a more than a hand in chosing the tins which makes them extra special. She knows me so well.

So the new adventure is getting closer and I feel that’s one big change dealt with. A million more to go.

*I admit it, I can be a grumpy, intolerant cow. I’m trying to change. (No I’m not).
