Escaping November

That seemed to me a very good idea, with November gloom encroaching on northern Europe. Jessi and Tino and about another half dozen of their Berlin clique yesterday packed their bags and headed for sunshine and summery temperatures.

The FlightAware app allowed me to follow their journey to Tenerife, in my imagination travelling with the sunseeking posse. I also mused on the fact that when Jessi returns to the office in the middle of the month it will be exactly a year since she embarked on her excitinng professional career. I shudder when I hear of shelf-stacking graduates... of the drudgery and precarity of those trapped in the gig economy... and breathe a huge sigh of paternal relief that Jessi was spared this fate.
