At last years work Christmas Party, a few of us made an inside joke about the party being a ‘formal’, like a school graduation formal when you graduate high school.
We planned on buying the bomber jackets to wear to the Christmas Party and everything.
Well somehow, time managed to get away from us and it just never happened.
None the less, it was an amazing night with everyone dressed up to the nines and looking stunning!
Since then throughout the year, the saying has continued and the bomber jackets were still in plan for this years Christmas Party.
However, 😦 since I was leaving, we decided to have the bomber jacket photo just before I leave with our work jackets as the bombers.
It’s been a blessing to have been able to work with some pretty great people.
I can’t even begin to explain how much I’ve learnt and grown since I first started here in November 2013.
Class of 2015, Thanks for the memories
Every Tuesday night I have been going to dancing at a dance school owned by one of my amazing friends.
It’s only for fun the adults class, but at the same time, the more I danced and learnt, the more my confidence grew.
Whether it’s been some modern dancing, tap or berlesque, it’s all been so enjoyable thanks to an amazing group of women who enjoy it just as much as I do.
As well as the social side of things, it kept me doing something once a week instead bedside I’d quit the gym to save more for my trip.
Tonight, after our dancing, I was presented with a beautiful farewell cake 😢
Thanks for letting me be a part of your amazing little class 💜
Last night I worked my very last shift at The Pig & Olive.
It was a nice and busy night, and a great way to finish off my time working there over the years.
This afternoon, my boss took myself and another one of the workers out for lunch and then we continued our afternoon at the wine bar with some cocktails.
Webb & Co Bathurst, do some really amazing cocktails!
It was a lovely afternoon relaxing and having a few laughs with these great people.
I give so much credit to this amazing family for how much they have helped me.
I have learnt so much about myself whilst working at The Pig and Olive and how much I want to gain out of life.
I am motivated and encouraged to to reach everything in my sights in my life and to do it well.
Have you ever felt like you were born to do something extraordinary?
I have, and it is because of the drive that I have from working with extraordinary people.
I’m not having a theme for my party, and it’s just nibblies and drinks in a function room at a pub in town.
There is an idea that I have though that I did want to incorporate into the party!
A photo booth!
On the downside, I’m not paying an arm and a leg for a hire one
So I came up with a plan!
At my 21st a few years ago, I bought disposable cameras and put them out on the tables at the party.
A couple of days after the party, I took the cameras into Big W and had the photos developed onto a CD and uploaded them to Facebook for everyone to see.
There were some really interesting and funny photos taken on the night.
I love the fact that with disposable cameras, you can’t just go back and delete a photo if you don’t like it, like you can on camera phones and dogit cameras.
So my plan for my ‘pop up photo booth’ is to buy disposable cameras again, set up an area in the function room of the pub and have accessories to use for funny photos!
I will get someone to get the photos developed after the party, because my farewell party, is the day before I leave.
Mum can upload them to Facebook and funny photos can be shared all round 🙂
