There's dedication to the JW cause - probably not the sort to be put off by the homeowner answering door in a state of undress and waving a gun.
May I suggest you buy her a dressing gown for her next birthday?

Been quite emotional as I havent been able to say goodbye properly as I took instant leave and will work from home but I felt an immense sense of relief leaving a building that has made me quite sick - dust/cockroaches, mulch, rodents.

Going to miss the people, they are fantastic but have a much better opportunity, it is just scary leaving and saying goodbye and leaving a 3 year comfort zone.

Not leaving Perth though.

Took a week off work, managed to stop my inhalers as I am getting some pretty serious environmental asthma symptoms, and realised I needed a change and quickly - my job had become so diluted, lots of work but no challenge and feeling overwhelmed.

I loved the people, it was a few mins from my home but I knew it was time to go so I found one job that I kept looking at on the net, sent off my resume, they called me two hours later, interview 5 days later and 3 days later got the call offering me the job, had the medical last week and then resigned.

Quickest job I ever got, but my current job released me today as I caught infectious bronchitis from work - crowded, dusty environment, mulch pile opposite, burns your nostrils and eyes and really was making it worse. Ended up really sick on steroids and stuff so although I am nearly better, I have two weeks to recover.

New beginnings, back in the city - which is something I need really but I shall miss my workmates.

Funny how things can take off and how quickly things can happen and you decide to change things. Im nervous about stepping out of the old comfort zone though, dont mind admitting.

It will all fall into place in a months time you will be wondering what you were worrying about

That's what your ex has been thinking since he saw you in the supermarket the other day.
