This week I have decided to try something new. Last week my 10 year old daughter came home from school with some homework, the topic, 'Interview someone'. They were given a list of questions to ask and told that they could interview anyone, about anything. I'll be honest I was well chuffed when she asked to interview me, but I wasn't sure how I could help, I'm just her Dad, what interesting things did I know about that would help in her homework. So when I asked her why me, after all she has a great gran who lived through two World Wars, surely she would be more interesting then me, my daughter simply said...
'You're writing a book and I was wondering how you do it and why?'
Jeez, the things kids say. So yesterday afternoon, we sat in the front room, my daughter with a writing pad and the better part of a dozen question, me with sweat on my brow and a glass of water, and we started the interview.
So below is the interview that my daughter did with me. If nothing else, it will prove to my daughters teachers that she did her homework, just in case she losses it on her way to school.
Interviewer - Amber
Interviewee - Me (Daddy)
