I had some issues at work with progression. I called and she pointed out that I should consider either moving departments or searching externally.

notes from Morenike

As I sit with my coffee enjoying a delicious apple pie made by my neighbour (with the fruit from my tree!) I started thinking about this mystery.

Here are my thoughts…
