First item is the job change. In order to get a few days at the new company before going on paternity leave I gave notice at my current place before a confirmed start date from the new one. There was a period of several weeks where I was on this quite scary limbo state. I was hopeful it would all work out, and it just about has in the nick of time! I got my start date confirmed 3 days before my last day at my current place. Pretty close!
I'm very fortunate that my new employer OS letting me have 2 weeks paternity leave. They are not obliged to do that at all. The plan is for me to have just over 1 week of work, to meet people and get access to relevant systems and then disappear off on paternity!
Right now my immediate thoughts are about if my last day at work will be embarrassing or not! The evening promises a nice curry so should be good. I've made some really nice friends over the years and I hope they stay in touch.
Thoughts on the new job right now are focused on hoping I'll go to the right building and have access and that kind of thing rather than any job related stuff.
On the baby front wifey is heavily pregnant and uncomfortable. House stuff is moving along although my mortgage application is not complete yet and I hoped it would be.
Last day at work is tomorrow....
