Macht's gut, und danke für den Fisch!
Today we both handed our notices of resignation in at work, effective for finishing at the end of August. What a liberating feeling! Nothing to keep us back here, nothing to keep us awake at night.
In situations like this one is of course tempted to do the two-finger salute as one leaves, in recognition of the crap days, the boring days, the stressed-out days, the frustrating days, and of course the inevitable occasional bastard colleagues who get on your tits (Verzeihen Sie meine Ausdrucksweise - pardon my 'French').
But there have also been good folk, good times, interesting projects, lots to learn, lots to challenge. Better than staying at home and watching day-time TV anyway (except for the Inspector Morse re-runs of course).
I'm with the dolphins on this one: let's forget for one moment the deadly tuna nets, the disruption of our sonar by military maneouvres, the cruel parody that was 'Flipper', and instead think on the positives and say 'So long, and thanks for all the fish!'
