4 months ago I took leave from work to go to Japan. 4 weeks ago I returned to work only to have the receptionist ask who I was. Not only the receptionist had changed. The whole of my department had left. I am the sole artworker in the London office. I knew before I left to go to Japan that lots of people were planning to leave. But I just assumed that people would be replaced and I'd have new people to work with. Due to the current financial problems, there are no plans to get anybody replaced. I miss the team spirit.
