Mary Poppins where are you?

Still no nanny.

10 good questions I'd don't ask when interviewing nannies:
  1. Why is (or isn't) it raining?
  2. Did you grow up with hippy parents? (Two of three great nannies have had hippy parents - I think it encourages practicality and responsibility from a very early age).
  3. What is under the sky?
  4. What are your partner and friends like?
  5. What is the rounded bump that lots of steam trains have on top for? If you don't know what would you say to a child who asked?
  6. Name at least 10 plants and 5 insects in our garden.
  7. Are you planning to have children with your current partner? If not why not?
  8. If I was home from work because I was ill what would you do?
  9. If you had your period what would you say about it to the children?
  10. When did you last lie?
