It's over.

After two and a half weeks, it is finally over. Well the hard part is. I think there are some tough times still to get through.

Today we were informed as to who was affected by retrenchment and who was not. I am so very grateful, to be one of those that is not.

Today was horrible. Some of my close colleagues were given letters. Tonight there are over two thousand families having to deal with this...please think of them at this time.

I am feeling bad for them, happy for me. I am feeling guilty...why them and not me. I am feeling so very grateful and blessed. I am all over the place right now. I can't really explain it. Feeling very emotional.

And I just have to say thank you...to each and every single one of you that left a comment here, on facebook and on twitter...they mean so much, especially in times like these. And of course to my family and my friends who are my rocks...

Sorry, I know this post is all over the place...I think that's how my head is at the moment.

I am so happy for you but totally get what a bewildering time this must be. Such great sorrow and such great relief at the same time.

Strongs to you as you walk this emotional line with your colleagues over the coming weeks.

You have no idea how relieved I am for you.

Listened to every new bulletin today about the retrenchment - like they were going to mention you in person, but i listened anyway.

I know what a difficult place you are in now - i've been there myself.
