Leaving behind all your friends and family and even your job is a big move and fairly emotional. However the plus side of this is you get an excuse to eat, drink and be merry. In my case this has meant around two weeks of constant nights out and on many of the days lunches too.
We had a really fun leaving party for all our friends at the Merchant in Clapham Junction. It was a really good night where we got to see a lot of our really good friends. One side effect of leaving seems to be that everyone wants to buy you a drink. So despite running a tab our bill was pretty low and every time I had drunk around half a pint a new pint was thrust into my hand – so all in all I ended up pretty plastered.
All in all it was a great way to say goodbye to all our friends and I hope a good time was had by all.
