Part, the fifth. In which the axe falls.

Today was my last day. It took me so much longer than I had expected to pack my office up – all my papers and precious items (Thai tuk-tuk made out of beer can, lucky Chinese waving cat etc).

At my wife’s suggestion, I wore the regulation uniform today: loudest Hawaiian shirt, long khaki shorts, hat, imitation floral lei and coconut with straw. There’s no point going on a long ‘holiday’ if you’re not dressed for it.

Now that I’m unemployed I don’t feel any different. Nah, I’m kidding I feel great! I am going to miss the people I worked with though.

Part, the third. In which I wish something would happen.

Still no replies to job applications.  My wife has also applied for work and if there are no positive replies within a month we may go wandering the world for six months while we wait for applications to be processed. How dreadful!

Air fares to Asia are really cheap now and we can live there cheaply too. Bugger it, maybe we should just go now. Part of me can’ t wait, but where to start?
