I have had a GOOD DAY TM. Mother-In-Law and I declared ‘Road Trip’ and I went to see my Mum for an hour at lunchtime (I had a jacket potato). This was good even if it must have felt a bit weird for Mother-In-Law, she got the works as I ended up walking along a bit of the Viking Way with her. Mum was really chuffed, I think it has to have been one of my better birthday present ideas, she looked utterly gobsmacked when she walked into reception and saw me!
I’m so utterly happy about today. The light was perfect and the sky was big and theres nothing and nowhere on earth I’d rather have been.
Apart from the bit of today which was my Dad informing me over the telephone that actually my interview can’t have been that good because they usually offer you a teaching job on the spot rather than (as they said) ringing me at some point over the next week. Well, I didn’t think I’d got it after that interview to be honest and I was somewhat nervous about the job anyway.
Then I read a friends blog to discover that Alan Coren has died. 🙁
