Hurrah!  Its the night of my leaving party and I canīt wait.  All of my plans are pretty much going as predicted and Iīm having a send off in a Spanish tapas restaurant, La Tasca, in Croydon near to where I live in the UK.

At eight oīclock, Joe, Gez, Nick and I are the only ones there... and Iīve booked a table for 20.  This could be embarrassing.  Our assigned waitress introduces herself to me and I really, really hope people can make it.

At nine, what was I worrying about?!  My friends have arrived and the wine is flowing.  Several people I didnīt think could make it, did... like Vicky, a friend I met at brownies, and Cathy, a friend from college who is at 26 already a European Executive.  You have to book weeks ahead for Cath to make it.

I had in mind a set of core friends I really hoped would come and you know what?  They all did, excepting one mate who had recently been dumped and one that was out of work and who needed to dog sit.  Thank you Gez, Joe, Barry, Nick, Jenny, Sarah, Livvie, Cathy, Ranu, Rich, Shazz, Vicky, George and Matt for coming, you made my night.  We had a fun dinner and then some of us went on to a club called Tiger Tiger.  Grrrrrrr!

I can't wait to leave now, what a send off.
