They're like buses

Jobs that is. You don't see any for ages then two turn up at once.

Or not, in the case of buses in Weston:-)

The post came today with an interview for a job at the local secondary school, and a letter from UWE saying they are arranging dates for interviews for teacher training (not that I've been invited to interview mind - just that they need more time to arrange dates!).

Oh what a dilemma! I like this job, but I don't know if I want to be a lawyer, and staying as a legal sec for ever doesn't sound very financially rewarding. I love the idea of working school terms:-) I know I like teaching in a generic sense, but don't know if I'd like working in a school.... and I haven't actually been offered the course yet. But if I do get an interview I know the biggest deciding factor in getting the course is if I have been working in a school already (obviously not the same criteria is used for new graduates, which I reckon is age discrimination, but.....)

What to do?

    Sorry as this unrelated to the topic but I was wondering if you are still podcasting. I just discovered your podcasts on keeping a cosy and clean home and I LOVE them. I also love how they are divided into 15 minute chunks. I am a full-time working mom with a travelling husband and housekeeping is not my strength. I need your help and wisdom! Any chance you are still doing it or might start again?

    best, your biggest podcast fan!

    Hi anon, I'm so glad you are m y bggest fan. Although obviously not big enough to actually know who you are fan of, as hav never done a podcast in my life - or even seen one!

    And as to having my help with housework...........

    *just wait a few minutes while I try to pick myself up of the floor*

    I am, without doubt, the least housework minded person i have ever met, and still managed to claim to be "normal" mentally! I do absolutely the minimum I can get away with - and my opinion of what I can get away with dos not match up to most other people who consider my house straight after cleaning & tidying to be an absolute tip!
