One milestone over, another to go.

Today will be my last day at Ladywood. We've been out to lunch and I've said goodbye to my favourite colleagues. Sandra has been on leave for two weeks and the harmony here has been absolutely lovely. Her 'other half', Keli, is a nice girl and I'd love to work with her as we've clicked, but unfortunately, her arrival doesn't mean that Sandra is going. And that's the main problem.

They got me a card signed by admin and Chairs, £20 of Argos vouchers and 16 Ferrero Rocher chocolates (now down to 12). Sandra hasn't been around to sign the card, which is just as well. Unfortunately, she turned up at the leaving lunch with four-year-old daughter in tow (who is absolutely gorgeous and Sandra most certainly doesn't deserve her), not for my benefit but because it's Cynthia's birthday on Tuesday and she'd bought her a present. We didn't exchange words; I studiously avoided looking at her. She flounced off five minutes later and suddenly I could relax again. It sometimes feels like she does these things on purpose just to make me feel inadequate. Not content with having done so the entire time she's worked with me, she has to go and ruin my last day as well.

Good riddance, bitch.

I'm going to buy a goodbye card over the weekend to send back to LAO on Monday, as I didn't have time during the week.

Today will also be my last day of gratuitous internet abuse, since I'm not sure what my workload's going to be like and wouldn't want to be too presumptious in my first week by going online all the time, so until we get Telewest sorted (and my computer unburied) I'll be updating sporadically. I might attempt to keep a paper diary if anything interesting happens. Unlikely, but you never know...

Anyway, that's one milestone. The other is this: I will be 25 years old in one month and one day. So here is a list of things I would like.

~ Nina Ricci's new perfume. I don't remember what it's called but the bottle is shaped like an apple.
~ Givenchy's Ange ou Demon? perfume.
~ A Creative Zen Microphoto MP3 player, in black.
~ A new camera
~ A Motorola Razr phone

Naturally, I don't expect anyone to buy me any of these (though Paul may get me the first one) but I just thought I'd throw it out there. You know... just in case. ;)
