November 04, 2004
Well the past week or so has been so incredibly busy, hectic and stressful that I very nearly had a minor breakdown. We seem to be running around like chickens with our heads cut off but things don't seem to be getting done. Actually, we've come a long way since a month ago and everything is bound to get done in the end (one way or another). We've battled through a comedy of errors that would have been comic had they been happening to someone else but now we just have nearly four days to go before we're off to London for two nights and then on to Nova Scotia. Hoorah! The only thing left to go wrong is the immigration hassle at the border….....watch this space.
Anyways, today will be my last day at E-lab and I just have to say how much I've enjoyed my time here. While I was working here, I did my Masters degree, had a baby, sold our property up near Nuneaton and moved house to Coventry and had Abby's first birthday party! With Karen Mortimer as my supervisor, I've been able to learn and help with interesting things that were completely outside my educational background and they proved to be fun as well. I do have to say that the people who make up E-lab are fantastic. I've never worked with a more professional and friendly bunch of colleagues. I started here as a part time temp in February 2002 and I have never once woke up in the morning and thought "God I don't want to go into work today...." I've always loved my time here (even more so after Abby was born because it gave me a break away!).
I'd just like to thank everyone I've worked with here. It has been really lovely and if anyone ever wants to visit Nova Scotia on holiday and needs a tour guide, let me know. Take care.
