Feeling The Love

After three and a half years in my current position, I'm moving on to new adventures and opportunities.  I make it sound so exciting but I'm just moving to another division within my part of the government and a couple of floors away.  However, I'm very proud to say that I've done a smashing job at really whipping my current group into tip top shape (or as close as I can get them!).  They were all very surprised when I announced that I was taking a secondment in another area for the next couple of years.  Shock.  Horror.  It was all a bit overwhelming for them.  I take good care of my folks and they know it.  They're all worried about what's going to happen when I'm gone. 
It will be at least 3 weeks (likely more) before they have someone in place for me to train. However, I'll be long gone by then. My last day is this Friday and I start my new position on Tuesday.  There won't be many people around to help them in their area either - Friday is the last day for another of the admins in our division and a third might be leaving at the end of August.  Sigh.  Not much I can do.  Despite feeling so blue and panicky about my leaving, they got together and presented me with this lovely bouquet.  I wonder who knew that Gerberas are one of my favourite flowers?
I'm looking forward to this new job; I'll have different duties and responsibilities (including budgeting and forecasting) and will be exposed to a whole different side of what our part of government does.  Wish me luck!
