Interview with Supergirl

This morning we went to Gatwick Airport to collect our new au pair.  Let’s call her “Supergirl” – I think she will need to be.  (You don’t have to be a superhero to work here, but it helps…)  When we got home, the first thing we did was to show her the important sights of our local area.  We introduced her to the lovely lady who runs the Art Gallery, showed her where the station is (for when she needs to escape Suburbia) and took her for lunch at the deli.  While we were waiting for our lunch, I suggested that the children might like to interview her for this blogpost.  It kept them occupied quite well, and this is what they found out.

I particularly enjoyed Rabbit’s contribution – Let’s just say that balancing pencils on our noses while sitting outside the deli was something of an ice-breaker!
