Reality has just kicked in!

Although I have been minding for 2 months ( wow!!) it has only been M 2 days a week and J 6 hours a week.

I have had G settling in the odd day here and there. And then last week took on twins for one day and signed contracts for another girl 1 day.

Well this week it all starts!

I have no kids tomorrow, 2 on Tuesday, 1 on Wednesday plus the creche work, 3 on Thursday and 3 on Friday!

I have just sorted out everyones obs books and it hit me that this is it. :panic:

I have 2 vacancies on Monday and 1 on wednesday for 0 - 5 but I have decided not to fill them now and see how I get on with this lot!

Oh it's great and you'll be fine!!!!!

At least you can have a breather on Mondays

Good luck next week

wow, well done of filling your books:clapping:
Sounds like you are going to have your hands full, see how it all goes before filling your other vacancies - you might enjoy the odd hour or so to yourself.


How is the creche work going?

you'll be fine and it will be great!!. Good luck (not that i think you need it) and please keep us updated on how you're getting on.

I'm hoping it won't be too many months before i start minding and then i'll be just as nervous and excited as you.

well done debbie you've got sorted so quickly

to be honest i would keep mondays free it was my biggest mistake giving up my day off and i really miss it

having said that one of my mindees has gone away for 2 weeks and i only have her mondays and tuesdays until 3.30 so for the next 2 weeks i have 2 days off a week

i am so excited about it so many plans for tuesday, tomorrow is paperwork day and catching up with the obs that i haven't done for weeks

I have just emailed the CIS to update my listing and have removed the under 5 vacancies.

It has worked really well that Ella and I will have a day together on a Monday too and only having G on wednesday has meant that I can do the creche too.

02-03-2008, 09:54 PM

Well done I have 1 place left mon - fri for over 5 mon - fri term time and hols and thats a place for another over 5 on fris and then I'm full I did have an enquiry for 2 sis aged 5&8 that would have been great but nothing ever came of it. The 5 year old is friendly with the 5 year old I have starting in April would have been really good in the hols.
