Favourite “at work” memory | When all of my regulars came through to see me on my final weekend at my last work place. They had known for a while that I was leaving to go on a big adventure around the globe and all made sure that they came to see me for a final drink and wish me well. It was very bittersweet but also quite heart warming.
