Last Week at Leisure Games

Today was the first day of my last week working at Leisure Games.
It's going to be an emotional one in many ways. I started helping out there after school and on Saturdays and during holidays back in 1986 and went fulltime in 1990.
Apart from a brief 'gap year' between the summer of 95 to autumn 96 LG has been my employment.
We have a staff meal tomorrow (Tuesday) which will be nice but I'm finding it hard already saying goodbye to regular customers and suppliers. Some I'll see at conventions but many I probably won't ever see again.
My regrets and sadness at leaving the shop (which I really do feel is one of the best game stores on the planet) are eased somewhat by the knowledge that I'm following my dreams and doing something that if I didn't try I'd always be wondering "what if?".
And I always promised myself I'd never wonder that. I'd hate to look back at my life and wonder how it could have been if I'd taken an opportunity that was offered to me, but refused.
I would rather try and fail than not try at all. Especially when I have a lot of faith in what I'm about to try.
Anyway, I may update later but dinner is now being served.
Sorry I've not been posting much recently but i'm currently reliant on my iPhone. When I have my computer and Internet up and running again you can bet I'll be back on a regular basis :)

Indeed :(
Btw, I should be in a position to phone you next week as I'll be in my new office (still no phone at home).
Would be wednesday onwards though (first day is 1st April -which I'm not sure bodes well:p)

That sounds great!
Wednesday afternoon or Thursday/Friday is perfect, seeing that I have those days off.

Good luck with whatever you're up to.
When are going to tell us? I have an inkling but I'd rather hear it from you.

All the best in your last week at LG, Angus. It's a big change, but such an exciting one, too - and of course stopping doing something you love, even if it's to do something *else* you love, is always going to be a wrench! Enjoy this last week, and the sense of excitement and anticipation at the whole new game ahead. It sounds like you've had some great times and made some really good friends - who could ask for more?
