Well i found out today that the lady with the 8 1/2 mth old has found a childminder who can take her straight away so no mindee for me:(

I felt a bit cheesed off as she said she'd talk to her mum who was going to help her out & get back to me & in fact her mum noticed my name today in the library & she told me! I acted really cool though, as she said there we're 8 children on this childminders books (she gave everybody 2 weeks notice as she's giving it up for some reason?), you never know i might get something from there but not holding my breath!

Still feel gutted though, I knew i shouldn't have gotten my hopes up but its sooooooo hard not to!

Sorry you didn't get this mindee but you never know what is round the corner.

Hopefully something or rather someone will turn up soon

Thats a shame, sorry you didn't get the mindee.

Boy I would love a baby to mind (I am getting rather broody - impression of hubby when I mention it:eek: :censored: ) and its also a pretty long term contract/prospect too isn;t.

I am getting a bit worried, in our area there is a massive slump in people using minders - in 40 minders in our area (on my vacancy lists) about 95% are not running anywhere near full capacity and several are thinking about packing up. My mindee will start full time school come September - which isn;t that far of really and there is no way I will be able to survive the drop in fees to just before and after school wages. I have started advertising everywhere - car, shops, yellow pages (free listing) doing the vista print brochure discounts etc etc....

Hope something else turns up for you soon
