Hi everyone,

Last week my son's crb came back (including his police caution :panic: ) but Ofsted, on Friday, had not received their copy so they said that all being well they should have it by today & be able to make a decision this week. Well, that was friday, I had the weekend when I couldn't pester them and today I couldn't resist just ringing again to check on the progress (thank goodness it's a different person each time I rang!!!) AND.............

It's in the post!!!!! :jump for joy:

A letter & my reg certificate! :clapping:

Woo-Hoo :laughing:

Hmmmm, shall I write out my resignation for work tonight or wait till the certificate is safely here???

Just want to thank everyone for all the help & reassurance you have given me :)
And to those still waiting hang in there.
I know I have been very lucky to get it thru this quickly. (sent forms off Nov 30 2007)

Just need to find some children......

Thats great !

Maybe you could get some mindees lined up before handing in your notice x it just depends how much notice you need to give i had to give 12 so i did it straight away :)

Thanks Cheryl & Sue,

I need to give 4 weeks notice.

As you can probably tell I am a touch impatient!! :blush:

I have one mindee lined up, my gorgeous 18 month old grandaughter :) which is one reason I am so impatient! She will be 23 hours a week so I could do with another one or two to help recover my wage. I am a single parent so the sole breadwinner in our house. I suppose working family tax credits will go up if I'm earning less tho?

Going to have to put on my serious & sensible thinking head on :idea:

anyway I'm still :jump for joy:
