I only have 5 more working days to do and then I finished for good. I will be free of the place that has been dragging me down for far too long. I finally turned around and said, "I'm handing in my notice," after a very bad day Tuesday. And my manager was the very one to hammer the final nail into the coffin.
Tuesday evening, she phoned me up and exploded at me; exploded at me for something that I had said to my deputy manager. Its a long story and I don't fancy sitting here and writing it all out. Either way, after she'd done yelling, I basically said, "Well I'm handing in my notice. I'm not happy and haven't been for a long while." And that is exactly what I did; handed in my notice the following day and said, "Nothing you say or do will make me change my mind. I've had enough." She did phone to "apologise" for exploding at me; I accepted the apology BUT still very unprofessional to lose it and explode at an employee like that. She then had the nerve to text my deputy manager and get her to ask me if I could leave the following week. Took me two seconds to turn around and say, "No. 14th March is my final day." It's down to her to sort it all out, not my problem.
Funny thing is, people have been saying, "Oh you seem happier," ever since I handed in my notice. And that's because I do feel happier, knowing that I am finally leaving for good and never coming back. And this Tuesday coming, I am signing up with an agency, so I am stepping into the unknown but I will be away from that toxic place and doing something else - I won't be working with children at all. I don't enjoy working with children anymore, so I'm coming away from it completely. I may go back into it later on but right now, I don't want to be working with them.
So I will be doing a countdown right to Friday. I think most staff know that I'm leaving, but haven't come up and asked me about it. I don't plan on telling the children, I'll just slip away quietly if I can. And hopefully leaving, my health will pick right back up again; hopefully I won't be too overly tired and my chesty cough will go too!!
And another good thing, the sun is back and the temperatures are starting to rise loved that I could put the washing up on the washing line today and dry it saw my first butterfly too, two buzzards circling in a thermal above the house and the flowers are appearing as well as the bees, so Spring to me, is officially here! But my mum is the first to get tan in the family, well first to get sunburnt I should say XD she flew out at 7am this morning (Saturday) to Frankfurt with a friend to do some photography for the day. They flew back the same day and she is back safe and sound at her friend's house, resting up for the night there before coming back home tomorrow
Anyway, it's getting late (currently 11:20pm here in the UK) so I am going to head off to bed!
