D-Day – Departure Day.
A whole new start tomorrow – at 5pm with all my belongings into two file boxes off I went… Parking the boxes on my new desk ready to unpack 1st thing tomorrow!!
The hardest part is trying not to look deliriously happy when the girls in my office are all teary!
The crazy thing is I AM JUST MOVING ACROSS THE PARKING LOT!
Sigh – it is kind of the end of an era, I have been part of the Music Department for almost 3 years … So it strikes me as strange that I feel so ambivalent! It may have something to do with the fact that my previous boss was a head case, and since he left 5 months ago I have been in limbo – having some meaning and purpose in my work is definitely something to look forward to…
Anyway, tonight turned into an impromptu dinner party, which turned into an impromptu farewell party… Bliss, Surf, Kaffin, Tez, Skeet and I had a roast dinner, (may I add…brilliantly turned out by yours truly) and a couple of bottles of wine (hmmm…wine… lovely stuff) and more than enough laughs to keep us going into the middle of next weekend.
There is something priceless about such great company.
There is also the occasional dilemma.
Because we are such good friends and have worked together for so long, the girls (Kaffin and Skeet) and I are pretty much an open book with each other – so, they know about YGM2.
Bliss and I live together, she clearly knows about YGM2
Surf and I talk about all matters to do with relationships but, I hadn’t had an opportunity to tell him about YGM2 yet, i really didn’t need to as Kaff and Skeet told Surf about him… So Surf was dying for the inside track BUT…
Tez, is totally in the dark. Tez is a bit of a dilemma for me. He is my footy buddy, I have always been rather soft on him and for the longest time Surf and the gang have been hounding me about just grabbing him, giving him a good old pash and seeing what happens. I was not prepared to take that course of action… I always rather hoped he might do it instead…
So tonight, here I was with Surf dying to talk about YGM2 and me not wanting Tez to know until there really is something material to report!!! Right on the horns of a feminine dilemma – of course Tez was aware of a subtle undercurrent of news he wasn’t a party to. As usual, I was acutely aware of his attention being on me rather a lot (this is pretty normal and part of my massive frustration that he never made a move on me…) wondering how things would change once there was something to report and how to tell him!!!
Guess there is no point in saying anything until there is something to say! However, I would be lying if I hadn’t wondered if my being sought out by someone else would give him a kick in the pants…
