I don’t know if I mentioned before that my starting work next week looked like it was going to prevent me from spending the Easter weekend in Nottingham with the Joinees. It turns out that my manager will be away at the end of that week, so I can take the Thursday off even though it’s only my fourth day on the job. Thanks to the bank holiday on Friday and the public holiday on Monday, my first weekend will be five days long. I just needed to book a hotel, because I still had my flights.
The following weekend, I’ll be flying to California to spend three weeks at Google HQ in Mountain View, near San Francisco.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and get a machine-readable passport.
