Gamer Over Man! Game Over!
So there we go my time at my place of last employment is over. In some ways I’m sad to leave, I got to know quite a few people well and will miss their banter. However in a lot more ways I won’t miss it. I’m not going to spend to majority of this post bitching and whining and picking apart things. It’s behind me now, forgotten and forgiven and I’m looking forward to the new adventure which is my next post which starts Tuesday.
My last day was ok as far as days go, quiet but that’s not unusual for a Friday. Got some lovely e-mails wishing me good luck and that jazz and a small congregation was had at the pub for lunch. I did have a leaving meal which, since it was short notice was just four of us. It was lovely and good company as well as good food. The thing that’ll made me chuckle a little and shouldn’t in many ways was the fact that the person brought in as my replacement left before I did!
Other than that yesterday was spent watching Westbury lose 2-1 in the dying minutes thanks to “el flappo” who is their goalkeeper. Both goals were conceded when in my opinion he came for the ball and missed. I don’t know whether it’s a lack of confidence on his part in himself or his defence or he plain just can’t make the right decision on balls put into the box. Either way it cost Westbury a win and sometimes it’s harder to take. If it was two corkers from 25yrds that no goalkeeper could save you can live with that. However, when both goals come from errors it makes the pill hard to swallow. However I didn’t go away too down hearted thanks to a linesman who whenever the ball was played forward seemed to constantly give the opposition offside.
To today then and that’ll be spent in Slough watching a hockey game that formed a present for my birthday last year. It’ll then be a quick drive back to meet a friend here at home to watch the Superbowl between the NY Giants and the NE Patriots. The Pats are odds on favourites simply because they’ve won every game however, for sheer fun of it I’m putting a punt on the Giants.. you never know! Thankfully I have tomorrow off and then it’ll be “back to school” so to speak in my new job. See you on the flipside!
