How things can change in a week!

I was complaining and moaning about work on 16 Dec. Then on.....

17 Dec, 11:30 - received call from agent who told me I got an offer from M.E.
17 Dec, 11:30 - 12:00 - locked myself in room and considered my options
17 Dec, 12:05 - 12:20 - began to speak to some friends, listened to their advice and made up my mind to leave
17 Dec, 12:30 - 12:40 - called PK on phone and told him my decision. PK fully understood my reasons for leaving.
17 Dec, 12:45 - 14:10 - talked to 2 close friends through lunch, and had the first peak of the offer.
17 Dec, 14:30 - 15:00 - typed out my resignation letter. (I forgot to date the letter....gosh!)
17 Dec, 15:00 - 15:15 - told DK about it. Thanks for understanding.
17 Dec, 15:20 - 15:30 - handed in my resignation letter to AL. He was half-expecting it and asked me not to worry.
17 Dec, 15:35 - 17:50 - began to spread the news. I was too excited.
17 Dec, 18:25 - 18:45 - spoke to Mr. P. This time, he was pretending to be a fatherly figure. Said that my decision was a natural one, how much I have improved and how he was impressed...blah blah blah...all bullshit for the whole of 20 mins.

20 Dec, 09:00 - 09:45 - signed my contract.
20 Dec, 13:00 - 14:00 - my 1st farewell lunch

21 Dec, 13:00 - 14:00 - my 2nd farewell lunch
21 Dec, 14:30 - 18:00 - shocked some people by emailing all my colleagues about my departure. Calmed them down by the nice egg tarts

22 Dec, 12:45 - 12:55 - received the cheque, signed some papers and returned my door access card etc.
22 Dec, 13:00 - 14:10 - my 3rd farewell lunch
22 Dec, 14:15 - 14:45 - did my final "lap of honour" on 29/F.

That's it. End of my 4 years 3 months' association with D.
