Debbie says cheers after 10 years

debbie says cheers

Today, we say goodbye to our beloved Editor, Debbie, as she leaves us after 10 years.

Debbie was a force around the office (some may say still is!). Her wicked sense of humour combined with her unfathomable knowledge are already sorely missed. But the show must go on, and Deb will guide us and help us to bring you all of your essential retirement news and views.

On a personal note, I remember meeting Debbie for the first time and I immediately wanted to work with her. She just seemed like a right 'lass'. And I wasn't mistaken. She was not only a fine mentor and a colleague who a: never let you down and b: was always there when you needed her, but she was (and still is) also a very good friend. And although she won't be gracing us with her presence around the office (though her presence can still be felt), she will always be a friend and favourite of mine.

I've never had so much respect for a work colleague and a person in general. She led by example. She was an absolute weapon.

So, enough gushing from me (although I do feel it is warranted). Why not share your favourite Debbie moment or just say goodbye in the comments below.
