Mementos of a great evening.  
Last night I attended my final reward / recognition event for my soon-to-be-ex employer. It was a formal dinner for the top achievers over the last twelve months; I very nearly didn't go, seeing as how I'd resigned, but was convinced by my partner-in-crime that I'd earned it and deserved to go, resignation notwithstanding.

So I did, and I had a lovely night surrounded by colleagues who I am really going to miss.

The event was held at the Moda Function Rooms at Hamilton, on the river. Before the night began I went with my abovementioned partner in crime on a visit to his friend who manages the residential side of the complex where Moda is situated. These photos were taken from his friend's balcony, with the beautiful Brisbane skyline as a backdrop. As you can see, my P-I-C is a much better photographer than I am!

I took this one on the trip home, as we crossed the Story Bridge. Not the best photo, being taken from a moving vehicle, but the city is just so pretty at night.

Thank you, that's sweet of you to say. My friend put that photo up on facebook and a few of my other friends have commented on how relaxed I look - it's amazing how un-stressed one can be after resigning from a high pressure job!

Home to me. Good luck with the change in employment. I recently did a change as well, did wonders for my health to leave the high stress job and do something totally different.

Thanks very much for that. After 21 years it's a bit daunting but moving away from the high-pressure sales role has to be a good thing, I reckon.

..hang on, I just re-read your comment... "home to me"?? Do you live in / come from Brisbane?
What did you move away from, and what are you doing now?
