My supervisor organised a farewell afternoon tea for me at work today. Can't believe I only have one more week to go before I go on parental leave for a year. I can't believe time has flown so quickly and by Christmas, I would be in my last month of pregnancy. This is really quite unbelievable!
Today, at the party, I was so touched by the efforts my supervisor put into organising it all - the invite, the food, the gifts, the giant card I received, the clean up..everything. I actually received individual gifts AND a gift card as well and it was generous amount I should say. I was so moved by the generosity and kindness of my colleagues. I will miss everyone there (ok, maybe not everyone LOL) and just chatting with my colleagues and shopping in the city and exploring new cafes and restaurants there. Next year it'll be baby and me and grandparents who would visit from time to time.
I wonder if I will forget everything about my work after a whole year. I wonder if people would have left and there would be new faces. I wonder if my job in itself would change. Farewells are always bittersweet aren't they? I guess we just have to sit back, relax and just simply enjoy the present :)
