I had a fun day yesterday with everyone in work laughing at me with my T shirt, of course I wore it! then congratulating me on retiring and saying see you Monday, a few of us girls went out to lunch in anticipation of future days! They did me proud, I am such a lucky "girl" to have such lovely people around me, I even had the office decorated, with Congratulations banner and some great old people sayings, like "I laughed so much tears ran down my legs" a bouquet, balloons, more presents, a voucher and cash for me to buy "crafty stuff" all this and I go back on Monday for 2 days a week. A bit embarressing really, but my gosh did I enjoy it, such a WONDERFUL day, thank you girls for ALL your efforts.  It made me feel really special.
AND of course THANK YOU ALL  for joining in.

I roped my hubby in to make sure I could get all the photos as it happened, I chose to use a little treasure chest given me a few years ago, seeing as it would be for a little treasure (hopefully) for someone.  Here are the photos as they happened -
