Chris left work on Thursday, He had a good last day and was given the cake as a present. The lady who made it is the very talented wife of one of his work colleagues, Dave. It has everything on it! The mini talon (aeroplane), Rock crawler, a collie, the Irish flag, he has fpv goggles on, and there’s the jeep! the detail is brilliant. Her website is http://www.lollyscakes.co.uk/ if you would like to take a look.
The cake was a very welcome total surprise. Thank you so much. Also, Chris has loved his job and will miss being there. He has been given a great reference and is very grateful both for that and for the job he has had and also for his friends/colleagues. I am so proud of him, his managers said they would employ him again if we came back, which is most definitely to his credit And theirs.
We’ve had a lovely card, someone has given us a plug in electric oven/hob (we didn’t have a cooker to take), another friend went with Chris to get a strimmer and got him a very welcome discount, so thank you, so much.
We are praying for Chris to get work once we’re out there but for now I think he’s hoping to be able to get organised and enjoy the time with us. There’s still his whole shed/workshop to finish packing up, so there’s a fair bit to do.
We also went out for a meal with our church community group that same evening to say goodbye really. It was lovely. It felt relaxed and was really good to be out with friends and talk about stuff too. So again, thank you. I’ve been part of our church for just over ten years now and I don’t think you really find friends and support like it anywhere else (that’ll be God).
13 days to go!
