....last day of work yesterday and now officially retired! Brilliant send off, lots of tears - not all mine - nice speeches and pressies. We went to the pub last night where there were more tears and pressies and quite a lot of wine so I am feeling a little quiet this morning. No regrets - I will miss the people ( will still see many of them), but I will not miss the job or the college. FE has changed so much since I started teaching that it was no longer the place or the job that I loved. I am going to take a few weeks to wind down and adjust and then think about what to do with my time. Mr C being more supportive now which is good so no pressure to find anything else, if indeed that is what I want to do. I've got a holiday to look forward to and it's in term time too - it's going to be all good.
