Tomorrow I give notice to retire!

Monday I give formal notice to leave from megacorp and retire!

I'll offer the standard two week separation period, but if I get walked to the door sooner - fine by me!

Next chapter about to start - looking forward to it!

I would like to point out that despite repeated statements that I would resign/retire on 5 Jan 2015 I did not initiate this thread. I will, however, start my own narcissistic thread tomorrow when I know what's happening.

Congratulations to you BBQ-Nut. Update us tomorrow.

Will start that tomorrow after I make the 'rounds' of giving formal notice.

Mostly it will be a process of disposing of old junk and paperwork.

I may end up with a single box of stuff to bring home -and then throw away from there.
