today has been a funny sort of day. i woke up late and sleepily rushed off to work. it was the old sabbs last day in the office so it was full of farewells and goodbye presents. my fellow officers and i slunk off to finish our team flag and give them some space. at the staff buffet, plates piled high and wine nicely chilled, the speeches began. and then followed the tears. it suddenly struck me, sat there surrounded by my team and watching the old team get so emotional, with my freshly printed id badge round my neck, how lucky i am. i’ve been in this job a month and already it has flown by. but if the 8 of us can be half as good as the team just leaving, we can say we’ve done a bloody good job.
