Ladies Night, Ritz Carlton, DIFC
Its official now! I am at my neighbourhood bar surrounded by good people, well on the way to tipsy, in a great mood, wearing a Tiffany love heart pendant round my neck…and no longer employed!! For tonight is my work leaving drinks and my (ex) team have taken me out to celebrate. Whether I get home at midnight and a little smashed will as of today, make not one jot of difference…for I am not due into the office tomorrow morning. Indeed the funemployment starts right here!!
Six years and three months of my life – the entirety of my Dubai existence save for that first week I landed in the Middle East – have been spent working at Meraas. And tonight I bid the Legal Department farewell. The team are generous and kind, and I leave them with heart proud of the friends I have made, and my neck a little heavier. For around it is their parting gift to me – a ‘Return to Tiffany’ heart & key.
