When u are about to leave your old job for a brand new, spanking, exciting one, thoughts tend to deviate from the present job from time to time. One month’s notice feels like a month's detention. And the focus is all on the day u’ll be free!

Then things happen, good things. And u realize that there will be things about the place, the people, the job that u'll miss when u leave.

Like random hugs from 7 year olds. When kids give me their piece of art and tell me it’s for me. I shall miss the light in the eyes of a boy when he finally gets the book he’s been waiting for. Or the way 5 year old Shaun says ‘Thank you Ms. Aaaaanu’ when I give him his library book. Or when I am mentioned in the school newsletter with the kindest of words. I almost, yes almost, shed a tear.

Good-bye to Miss Anu

We regret to inform you that our lovely Library Assistant, Miss Anu, is leaving the school. Monday, 26 May will be her last day in the library. Please take time to come and say good-bye, or send her an email message: to express your appreciation for her wonderful service during the past two years and to wish her well in her new position.

And sometimes, just once, maybe twice, u wish that something more would happen so that you could stay.

But u know u can’t. Because u gotta get out there and spread the wings. And fly.

actually it's been a year and 5 months, but i guess my bosses thought 2 years 'sounded' better. :P

but as they say, it is the thought that counts...:)
