I’ll stop by Regent’s Park College this afternoon for farewell cake with [soon to be ex-] colleagues; this is the last working day of my contract. I have only great things to say about Regent’s: everyone here has welcomed me, treated me with appreciation and respect, and has conveyed regret about my necessary departure. (It really is necessary; that’s the way their staffing model goes, and I’ve known that from the moment the post was advertised.) I in turn reciprocate their best wishes: Omnia probate quod bonum tenete!
Luckily (with a view to my future consumption of cakey kilocalories), I ran my 1.7 this morning, said my prayers, and am ready to face the world. Floreat Oriel, and perhaps another future employer as well!
