A Chapter Closed

Today was my last day at work at ANZ. It was sad to leave the many friends I've made but I'm sure I will see them again.

2 days ago, Hubby sent me beautiful flowers celebrating my last week of work.

Yesterday Little one came and joined me in the office for a couple of hours. She loved playing with the calculator and any other toys she found on my colleagues desks. hehehe....

To say I didn't do any work today is an understatement. To be honest, all I did was eat. We went out for breakfast at Torts Famous. We all had the steak and egg tort. It was steak, eggs, cheese and onions in a wrap.

Since I was leaving, I had to pay departure tax - in the form of morning tea. I didn't want to bring in the usual party pies and sausage rolls and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I decided to make Nachos. It was quick and very easy to prepare and it went down a treat. I topped the chips with salsa ( one hot and one mild), sour cream, mozzarella cheese ( I chose mozzarella for the stringiness) and guacamole, which I made. See recipe below.

I also baked a honey chocolate cake. I found the recipe in Nigella Lawson's Feast. It's very chocolatey, sweet and sticky... yum!

My friend LL made some fudge for me to share with the team. Thanks LL!

For afternoon tea, my friend AL treated me to a lovely cup of hot chocolate at Koko Black. I love this place. Their hot chocolates are to die for. I love to sit on the top floor in the nice comfy couches or on a seat next to the window and look down into the Royal Arcade.

At the end of the day, I was presented with a card with the signatures of all my colleagues and gifts. I got a nice white platter from Maxwell and Williams and a Recipe Journal. I am sure I will use both.

Thanks to my friends at ANZ that made my working there an enjoyable experience. Will miss you all.

Bon Appetite

Hi Mellie, I've decided to work in the family business. This will also allow for me to spend more time with the Little one. I think I will miss the corporate world but most of all I will miss my lunch time trips to cafes and eateries with my friends.
