Celebration Candy Winner

Good morning to you all

Today is the day, yesterday was my last day in my old job, it was quite an emotional day, as I work with some wonderful people with hearts of gold.

This is a long post but I had to do it.

 Thursday was my last day at the other campus and I managed not to use my tissues, it was lovely being able to say goodbye to everyone especially the learners who if I have not mentioned are learners with disabilities or difficulties, one was brilliant shaking my hand and bowing low for me.  I got a lovely gift made especially for me by one of my team, using the cameo and a mirror (I will share with you shortly)  I am so pleased I introduced him to the silhouette and I broke my diet twice, once at lunch to east some of the famous lemon drizzle from the exam officer who treated me to a new mug and coaster - perfect for my new job and one of the learners was celebrating a birthday so a little chocolate cake too, all the learners had signed a card for me so very special and will treasure these and the card from the staff.

Yesterday I arrived to a lovely gift from my peer a support package for my new post, a bottle of wine and a packet of ciggy's.  With a lovely card with a heart felt note, managed a hug and no tears phew!!
The day was lovely I managed to cleanse and complete everything I needed to for the hand over in the afternoon, for lunch the catering ladies had specially prepared some old school chocolate concrete with chocolate custard, I had joked that it would be nice on my last day and they were fabulous and provided it.

I said my farewell's to the learners with lots of hugs and well wishes, before leaving for our leaving run.  there were five of us on the leaving run, actually leaving and a special group of colleagues to give us a right good send of.

Here is the photo from the evening

The ice bucket and sparkly celebration bottle Karen and I shared and Karen got us.

I got some lovely leaving gifts and would like to thank everyone for their kind words and the gifts.

Here is the photo of all of the gifts and cards :)


The gorgeous mirror with etched bow swirls and at the bottom out of view the very thought full swallow - which I am told migrates but then comes back :) A lovely selection of cards with such heartfelt comments in from both staff and learners.  A gorgeous scented candle. A bottle of Glenfiddich and two etched whisky tumblers from my boss, the glasses etched by one of my team an artist in precision creating with wonderful sentiment on them from my boss and my peer (there are little stags around the top depicting my love of Glenfiddich). A gorgeous mug and matching coaster from the exams officer, a mug made by a learner, my favorite Yankee candle tarts, a pack of ciggys and a lovely bracelet (wearing it now to think of them all), I am so very lucky to have made such fabulous friends, we are all going to keep in touch.
Thank you to each and every one of you.

Anyway my reason for being with you all today is of course to tell you who is celebrating with me and has won the celebration candy

Remember the winner will win this lovely selection of Wild Rose Studio goodies.
