my last shift at work tonight

my last shift at work tonight. I finish at 6am Sunday – it’s starting to sink in about my big trip. I’m getting excited but nervous- it should be great. When I started in the distillery being so young, I listened to all the older guys with all ears. They all took their time to show me what to do, although some were grumpy, I just took it in my stride. I went out to the bond store on the taieri plains when we had nothing to do and helped on the trucks taking the whisky out. I climbed into the racks to put the barrels in and had to watch my fingers didn’t get caught and chopped off. It was hard work - the truck drivers were a tough bunch- strong but they were good to me.
