Sorry to hear that!

I can understand you being annoyed.

Get yourself on the vacancy list and get advertising :thumbsup:

O thats not so good.

Start advertising like mad everywhere you can think of.
Maybe when schools go back someone might need you so get out and bout and hopefully something comes your way.

Are there any new houses built in your area if so get some leaflets through their doors. Its all alot of work but all you need is one to join your setting to help you out.

Sorry for waffling on lol
