Josie making my working day interesting. No fisticuffs but Josie told next doors neighbour's cat to fuck off. Get off my land!

I had the second interview for a new role yesterday, at the end of the meeting the HR chap called me a Unicorn.
According to google "a person or thing that is rare and highly valued"
I laughed, and told him my daughter would enjoy that. Looks pretty assured at this stage but you never know. This HR chat is what I call a dickhead test. Basically, the team that's recruited me have said they want me, someone else has to come in and check i'm not a dickhead. I can hide that for sure during a 30 minute chat!

Arthur wasn't well on Saturday (We think he had what his childminder had on Friday), it wasn't fair on letting the babysitter deal with him so I had to stay at home for our friend's birthday down in St Leonards Warrior Square. He's fine now though. More or less back to full fitness on Sunday.

One of the workers at my local pub guilt tripped me into hastily running round Tonbridge on Tuesday to make a Valentines day meal. Chilli and garlic butter lobster with chips and a tomato and shallot salad, plus some sparking English wine. I also popped to the local florist and got some flowers 2 mins before they shut for the day. Who says I'm not romantic? April.
Went to see Panic Shack, (mostly girls punk band from Wales) at the Forum last night with April, Stu and Lesley. We went to a lovely new bar for a quick drink or two beforehand. They were supported by a band called the Snakes, and another band of sweaty teenagers. Pretty good night.

So Flo got to go to rugby on Sunday. Arthur and April joined us halfway through. We struggled with him last year at rugby tots as all he wanted was to be carried which wasn't much fun. He seemed to enjoy running round on Sunday so we'll look into getting him back into when we return from Australia.
I went to see Apocalyptica on Saturday, it had been rearranged twice due to Covid 19 but we eventually got to go.
I bought some for my niece over Christmas and though Flo would like a go so bought her some too. Lego flowers. They're not cheap but was a good couple of hours entertainment over the weekend. Pretty sure we can't kill these flowers. There are some succulent ones too which I fancy getting for myself.
I received another kickstarter last week, plush Cthulhu plus some very heavy dice. It's taken over 18 months to receive and obviously spent too much but pretty pleased. 3 more left to arrive, some have been over a 2 year wait.
Occasionally we get fruit at work, i'm only in 1 or two days so don't often see it. The week we had some figs. Not sure if i'd be confident enough to eat that in the office. I've used them in cooking a little but not sure if you just bit into it raw or have to peel it first.
