Card making · My other ramblings

All Change!

Today was a day of real mixed feelings. My temporary contract ended so I had to say goodbye to some lovely people who I’ve worked with for the last 18 months. 
I made some thank you cards last night using my Cricut as there were a few people who I wanted to thank individually. I also bought some biscuits for the staff room, and some tea towels because they always seem to disappear! The tea towels raised a few smiles this morning (so did the biscuits!)

The photo doesn’t show them in their best light but it was late at night when I finished!

At the end of the day we had an assembly and I was presented with some beautiful gifts, including this amazing bouquet and a Cath Kidston bag (I’m still deciding whether to make it a project bag or a ‘carting junk to work’ bag!) I felt incredibly lucky.

I also received a lovely word collage picture. What meant even more though, were the kind words from my colleagues. When someone tells you that you’ve had a huge impact on a group of children and that you’ve done a great job it is a lovely feeling.

For now I’m a ‘proper’ supply teacher. (I was doing supply a couple of days a week as well as this part time job, but now I’m doing it full time.) Tonight, though, I think I will just enjoy the flowers and relax.

  1. Oh my how coincidental. I had my last day at my work place after 4.5 years yesterday! Mine was by choice though and I don’t have a new position either. I’m hoping it wont take too long to find a new position but in the mean time I’m looking forward to some extra crafty time and a chance to stop for 5 minutes. Fab cards you made and lovely gifts.

  2. I also just resigned from…well one of my jobs. It’s bittersweet even if it’s a choice. Hope you enjoy your evening!

  3. How lovely of them. The flowers and the bag are beautiful. Enjoy them, and the memories they will bring back.
    Great post. Lovely read, and for some strange reason, I kind of wanted to cry about you leaving! How silly am I? You are going on to other things, which will be great for you, but I wanted to cry at the feeling of loss I felt – almost as if I was in the team you were saying ‘bye’ to.
    The cards are lovely!

  4. It sounds like the place where you were working will really miss you! What a wonderful gesture. Also, it sounds like you’re a treasure as a coworker so I thinking marching on in your career looks as bright as your beautiful parting gifts! πŸ™‚
