Who are you?

My eldest daughter went for an interview last week, and had the most extraordinary experience. We don’t know if she’s been successful yet, but what struck her and me was that this was no ordinary interview.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?

It’s almost time for those New Year’s resolutions – you know, the good intentions we make and set out to follow through on, but never do! Why is that?
