Mind you, one of my ex mindees parents told me I was worth more than I was charging and I should put up my fees. I did!

one of my parents did that to me! when she asked my fees i told her and she said "is that all, i'll give you more!!" i obviously said no i dont want more it wouldnt feel right, but glad to know some parents really appreciate us, are fees and the work we do :laughing:

thats good, but you could get variation, as its continuity of carer..

shame as she seems to be settled....

i had one that paid me for my time off, even though i didn't charge!

One of my parents did that as they only like dealing with easy amounts to withdraw from the bank. I charge extra for each meal so tea for the week is £7.50 although she pays £10.00, they do it all the time :clapping:

i want a parent like that!! :laughing: i always tell my hairdresser she is undercharging and pay her a bit extra - last time she came i decided i was happy with my hair and so she just cut DH's and DS's and only asked for £7!!! :eek: it would have cost her more than that in petrol so i paid her £15. ;)

Im definitely not dreaming, I have the contract in black and white:laughing: :laughing:
I could get a variation, but I have a sibling starting soon too, and need a variation for that! Thigs are really busy up my way at the moment:)
