The end of the line!

It's here... my last week! I have a mere two more days to work, and my days as the Charity Shop Fairy are over. Well, sort of. I'm going on a 0 hours contract as a safety net...


There's so many posts I haven't made and so much weirdness not documented - I'm sure I can keep the blog going with retrospectives for some time!

We're off out for a farewell dinner tomorrow evening- to my surprise, an insane number of people are coming. It could be quite traumatic! I'm even considering breaking my teetotal of 6 months. It seems like an occasion on which one ought to have a drink. Though it could equally spell disaster if, as is very likely, I become slightly intoxicated and behave inappropriately!

It feels a bit like stepping of the edge of the cliff (leaving the shop, that is, not having a drink!) - and I may in fact go slightly potty without all my lovely nutters around to keep me sane!

Yes, I handed my notice in 3 months ago... Bit of volunteering and house doctoring for a while - considering applying to the local corner shop for some part time work too so I don't starve! Then hopefully starting an electrician course at college in September.

I just found your blog and am sorry (for me) that you're not blogging anymore - though happy for you that you got out of the thrift store racket as it sounds like you needed a break. I've often thought a great novel could be spun out of all the strangeness, heartache and humanity that bubbles up in thrift shops.... All the best!
