    Default Giving notice tonight.......

    ......to all my families

    Hubby is in the forces and has been offered a Sub Unit Command post nearly 200 miles away - eek!! Today the powers to be have confirmed he needs to be there for 1st September so that means we are on the move again (only moved to where we are now end of July last year!).

    Therefore ive drafted a seperate personal letter to all my families advising them that I will be working until the 19th July and stating why I am terminating contracts.

    Dreading the door going now as I hate having to give notice and I get on so well with all my families that I am really going to miss them all - particularly the babies who have gone from being tiny to toddlers walking, talking and becoming individuals.

    Little sad at the moment but looking forward to a new start.

    Bugs xx

    Oh it's so sad to give notice they all become family so quickly. Exciting moving though must be nice to start again.

    Good luck with giving notice - you have to put your family first sometimes and 200 miles is rather a long way for your hubby to commute each day! Will you start up again when you get sorted in your new house?

    That's hard having to give notice to all your families. I always feel there's no point in doing this job if you don't get attached to the children so must be hard to leave them all behind. And, having to start all over again

    Good luck with it all

    Hi yes. I plan to start up again - already had some interest which means I can breathe a sigh of relief. Even if they do not sign with me, there are people looking. Its such a rural location I did panic. However we suffered a MC in March and we will be trying again so if I fall pregnant before we move then I shall not look to resume work until after the baby is born. Just wait and see for now.

    Parents told - really great about it. Feel so much better having told them.

    Wine oclock it is tonight then!

    Good luck, I suppose that's the draw back (or sometimes a good thing) with being I the forces. Hope the parents all are understanding.

    This is the 4th time im having to do it. We've ended up moving nearly yearly since ive been reregistered due to my husbands job. However seems he is the main breadwinner and the house comes with the job etc then not a lot I can do about it. x

    You shouldn't feel too bad about giving notice, parents will understand, plus you're not giving notice because of something that hasn't worked between you and the parents/children. Good luck

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door
