I have just made myself look sooooooo stupid!

I had an interview with a family who need care for their twins. We're chatting away, getting on really well. Then the lady says "oh, dont you need special permission from Ofsted to have twins" and I said that I didnt think so, Id never heard it. She said "oh yes, at my Twins Club they said you have to have special permission". I said I didnt think so but that I would look into it. Then she says "oh you know..because they are both under a year old"!!!! I didnt even think of that!! How dumb is that??? I think Ive just lost a potential customer! :panic: :doh:

Oh what are you like? You knew that! :panic:

I do things like that... open my mouth sometimes and totally forget to engage my brain... don't despair, it gets worse as you get older :laughing:

Oh bless ya! I wouldn't have thought you would lose her cos of that, she probably knew that you made a mistake.

Update...this lady has sent me and email AND phoned to arrange another appointment to meet her husband...I think Im chickening out!

On a serious note though - do you reckon Ofsted would give me the variation? Thing is, I was planning on asking for a variation to go over my numbers..not to have two under 1s!!

so long as you word it all properly and tell them what they need to hear - go for it girl

oh and well done- the "idiot" moment obviously worked then - wondering if that is a good marketing ploy or not!! lol glad they have come back to you:clapping: :clapping: thats fab.
