I'm currently feeling stunned. I got a phone call today to say that I was being offered the job as Deputy Leader at the local after-school club. I'm having trouble taking it in.
Thanks to everyone who sent me your good wishes for the interview, both before and after.
For some reason, I feel like I need chocolate.

Tomorrow I have an interview at my local primary school for a post working in their After School Club. I have to carry out a 20 minute group activity with some children, and have a twenty minute interview. I'm nervous.
It's a big step forward after being at home ill for so long. I really want to do it - I love working with children and families and this is even better than a teaching assistant's job. I hope I'm up to it. Wish me luck!

Offenders in Alabama can be sentenced to attend church as an alternative to jail, according to this article.
Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? And how can they suggest that belief in God makes you more moral?
Or have I missed something, and did this originate in The Onion?

I've just had phone call about "my computer" telling me that it's infected. OK, right.
Me: Which computer?
Foreign-sounding Guy On Phone: Do you have a computer?
Me: If you don't know if I have a computer, how can you tell me it's infected?
That elicited a load of gobbledegook about viruses from my address - both my IP address and apparently my street address. OK again.
Eventually I said I don't own a Windows computer (I'm a naughty little liar, I am) and he hung up.
It hits hardest because my poor little laptop is off at the manufacturers after completely reinstalling Windows didn't work. It kept freezing even as it was updating Windows. I miss it.
