I intend to create contact with people who don't want reams of meaningless metrics/last minute rota changes/extra oxycodone oh and just my diazzies from me.

Despite everything that happened to bring me here, there are a lot of things I will miss.

Feeling free to explore a place I love to my heart's content, getting to experience unique and eye-opening events every other week, having an increased sense of independence.

It's also worth remembering that I wouldn't have made it this far if I hadn't at least been passionate about the work I did from the beginning. There were (and still are) people I worked with who I appreciated being in the company of, even if that couldn't always be the case.

The money and the laughs. I see I posted in 2017 and my list is substantially smaller now :)

I struggle to come up with anything, but here's one: I miss the opportunity to wear out clothes I otherwise wouldn't have bought and have no desire to wear now. I know it's a weak one, but that's a reflection of my strength of missing anything.

4 months after leaving, I'm missing nothing. The people I got on best with I am still in touch with and whilst the extra money was great, we are managing fine without it.

Other than the income I don’t think I will miss anything when the time comes.

Lots of people say they will miss the people and while I have worked with lots of nice people I also have worked with many who I just don’t trust or like.

I also find that when work separates me from people I got on well with it’s usually me that makes the effort to keep in touch.

AnywAy I reckon I still have three years to go at least and am moving into a new role in the next two weeks. Plans are to get my head down and enjoy that as it’s a job I can do well and enjoy and also the people are good.

Got something to say?
