Leaving part 1

Since I am moving to Norway I had thought to give a small leaving party for my colleagues. Normally I would have organised the drinks and the food myself, but this time I thought I would ask a colleague who has some experience in catering. That way I didn't have to worry about how much food or how much drink, I could just let go and enjoy myself. 

And I did! There were colleagues I have worked with for years, former colleagues, new colleagues and the partners of my closest colleagues. We had a few drinks (there were designated drivers), we had some food, we had laughs and I stood and chatted with everyone I think. Everybody wished me luck and asked me about the wheres, whats and hows. We reminisced about the good old days, drank a few more drinks (only cyclists left by then) and finished close to midnight.

I will miss my colleagues for their friendship and their support. 


  1. So you'll miss your colleagues but you won't miss the school buses full of children? LOL
    Sounds like you had fun, and I'm so glad. I hope your new colleagues in Norway are good people, too. You deserve it.
    Luv, K

  2. Sounds like a very nice time. So glad you got to have the gathering.
    They look like some nice colleagues.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
