Today was my last day working in my 8 year career that I have come to the decision is not for me anymore.
My shoulders felt ten tonnes lighter walking out for the last time.

I’m scared, but excited for taking on a new adventure... I just haven’t figured that part out yet. Pah! 🤣

My house went on the market today. I've accepted an offer before any details were even printed! It's such a weight off my mind, I feel I can breath again after months of worrying what to do for the best. Fingers crossed the sale goes through quickly with no hitches.

Good luck with the sale @piggieminder. Where are you moving to?
My Mum has completed this week on the sale of our family home. Sadly she had to pull out of her purchase as there were a multitude of legal problems with it, but she has moved in temporarily with my brother while she continues her search.

Thought I would start a nice thread. What made you happy today? I’ll go first!

My husband just rang me asking if I want some Karin Slaughter books that are going for 50p in their staff shop. I’m so happy that he remembers she is one of my favourite authors. I do love him 😁😍

Wow, that was quick - even quicker than a friend of mine a year ago who agreed within a couple of days of going on the market. Hope it goes smoothly hereonin!
Wish we had had an decent offer anywhere nearly as quick as that ...

Today I brought a big stick form a fish specialist pet shop for my sisters turtles I didn't find the perfect stick for Spirit (my corn snake) but the turtles needed one too. I understand how strange it is to be like a kid in a candy store rushing past all the beautiful fish to get to the stick section and spending a good 20 minutes looking at every stick then spending £25 on a twisted piece of wood but somehow I really felt like I was treating myself.

Thanks @VickiA I'm not actually moving anywhere. I moved to Bristol 8 years ago when I needed a lot of medical treatment at a specialist unit here. I'd had tenants in my house while I stayed with a friend, originally for two years, the arrangement worked so well for everyone so I stayed. The tenants have now moved on so I've decided to sell up. The 140 mile round trip to check on the house was getting to much for me.
It's broken my record of 4 days @Qualcast&Flymo . It's not always been that quick for me though. In the early 90s it took 10 months and in 2009/10 it took over a year! It was just the right time in the right place for someone who had already got a buyer and was on the agents list.

I totally understand! I’m like that with wood/plants etc for my fish tank! I hate shopping normally but when it’s for my pets I blooming love it!
