and this am the mum of the 2 part time annonced that her boss changed his mind and is not giving her the shifts....they started yesterday and they're leaving next week!!!:(

I know what you mean....

I have 3 under 5 spaces that are filled with term time only children, great children and fantstic parents. I would probably be able to have these children until they no longer needed a childminder. My perfect set-up.

DH is in the RAF and we are expecting to have a new posting soon - so just as my job is sorted for the next goodness knows how long, I shall have to upsticks, move and start all over again. And whats the likelihood of me getting another set of children like that?

....as you say tomorrow is another day and hopefully things will get better. :)

Yes, I've realised that the minute I start to think things are finally coming together is when it all goes t*ts up!!!!

Just 6 weeks ago I had a 4 day, a 3 day and 2 after schoolies, and now i only have the 3 day, but he doesn't start properly until October, so I'm screwed until then!
