1 Year Notice and pictures

Today I gave one year notice that I shall be leaving the company. That is a bit extreme I know, but i am 100% certain about the decision. I also understand the need for my boss to start looking at the current employees and begin considering who will come into the office next year. With those people starting to think about their plans for next year too, I understand the need for the boss to know sooner rather than later.

In terms of office politics the decision to announce my leaving in around 365 days could blow up in my face. I may now be seen as an expiring vegetable in the office supermarket rather than a prime bit of steak. I had a feeling the question was coming though so had time to think about my answer. My decision was based on the fact that the company has endless useful contacts and will not hold too much of a grudge to my leaving. So is more useful to me if I am a vegetable, if that makes sense.

I still feel very ill. I am at work today wearing a mask so as not to spread my germs to others. I leave you with some random pictures of events over the past few weeks that I have neglected to put pictures up of.

The pictures are from two different days. One was a Junk Boat trip organized by a friend and the other was a day out in the New Territories kite flying and bike riding.


ps, comments you leave will take a while to come up at the moment as I am trying out a new system.
