this is our easter tree we went twig collecting for and decorated, also showing freddys bean he planted at school, all the children were coming out of school with pots with plants about 6 inches tall and then freddy came out with what looked like just a pot of soil! i know that he did plant something in it cos theo was poking around in the soil and found a bean!

freddy gave me a quiz whilst we were getting ready for bed:

what colour is freddys bedroom? red, blue or green?

where do we live? hull, whitby, heaven or london?

what time is it on the time traveller clock? 6 o'clock, 7 o'clock or 5 past 2?

when did dracula arrive on tate hill sands? 15th july or my birthday?

how random! it then descended into a big discussion about what form dracula was when he arrived on tate hill sands? why was he on a boat? why is it called tate hill sands? whats the other beach called then? how did i know all these things!

the weathers been funny lately i have a job interview tomorrow for a job as an art teacher in adult education (absolutely shitting my pants) its only for 2 hours a week, which would be great for me because i'd been wanting to go back and do another nightclass since i stopped my sculpture class to have theo, so it'd be like going to a nightclass but actually getting paid for it, hopefully?!

i've no idea what the interview will involve and am not sure if ill be able to handle it but we'll see? i cant really imagine me heading a class either or ever having the confidence to but, i dunno.

i havent been to a proper interview for along time and sort of not ever really so i'd kind of planned what to wear (going back to my original weather comment!) and now its got really hot? ohhhh i'm scared i think i'll have to wear what i planned anyway and just sweat! as i dont really have a huge range of interview-ish clothes!

its also siobhans birthday tomorrow and she got a new house on my birthday last week so she reckons its an omen that i'll get a job on her birthday?!
