meeeeeeeeeeee , looking forward to it, not sure what to expect though? Where are you from then katymac??

Katymac Fri 09-Feb-07 21:47:15

Norfolk....what are you wearing??

TLC123 Fri 09-Feb-07 21:57:00

Not sure yet, i have looked at the pictures on the ofsted website, everyone looks very smart. I was thinking black trousers, smart top/blouse. You've got a long way to travel!, I'm only half an hour away, still losing a days pay though! Are you travelling up with other minders from your area?

Katymac Fri 09-Feb-07 22:00:51

yes in a minibus (I hope no-one smokes)

How many of these have there been?

I've bought a dress & jacket from Monsoon & a new pair of shoes (don't really do smart)

TLC123 Fri 09-Feb-07 22:23:27

I think there have been about six around the country so far. If you go to the ofsted website click on the o/s providers list there is a link for the photos on the left hand side I think

TLC123 Fri 09-Feb-07 22:25:15

dress and jacket from Moonson, sounds very smart, I don't do smart either, always feel a bit silly. I'm happy in jeans and jumpers really

Katymac Fri 09-Feb-07 22:34:23

Gosh it does look posh.....bummer

I won't be until next year as my Ofsted was after the cut off date , by then I will have been Ofsted for 18 months!

Katymac Mon 12-Feb-07 12:26:23

That's a shame - we could have all met up

I went to the one held in Manchester. Was surprised it was standing up all day. Stand up for speech stand up for buffet lunch then queue for photos. My feet were killing me as I bought new boots, big mistake. But a good day out, got to meet lots of people both minders and Ofsted folk.

Katymac Mon 12-Feb-07 13:13:51

I will be asking for a chair - I cannot stand up for very long

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 08:35:05

Stress...stress - I am so nervous

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 20:25:39

Significant bit of an anti climax

Nice food tho'

Did I talk to a MNetter? hmm I'm not sure....did I?

TLC123 Mon 26-Feb-07 21:54:34

Hi Katymac, my feet and back still hurt from all that standing up!!

The food was nice, the time went very quickly though, thought we might get some nice freebies in that bag

Don't think I spoke to you, I am assumming your name is Katy mac.....something??? I was checking out name badges. I met another cm from another group I'm on , but didn't talk too many people as I'm a bit shy

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 21:55:42

No - it isn't

I was (almost) in a bright sixties print blue dress & cardie

TLC123 Mon 26-Feb-07 22:09:45

Ohh, didn't help me looking for Katys then!!
Did you know the photo's are on the Ofsted web site, I just had a look for some-one in a blue dress and cardie, couldn't see you did you have your photo taken? I'm on page 16 top row, third one along, alful photo though

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 22:15:45

You look a bit uncomfortable

I'm page 9 2nd row, 2nd in

TLC123 Mon 26-Feb-07 22:22:51

Yes I hate having my photo taken, yours is lovely though.

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 22:27:16

I'm quite loud and a bit brash - can you not tell from MN??

I thought the food was good - but no goodies

I got a job offer tho'

TLC123 Mon 26-Feb-07 22:29:37

ohhh was it a good job offer, an ofsted inspector???

Katymac Mon 26-Feb-07 22:30:26

No - to open a nursery in a school in Chelmsford & he was really young & dishy

TLC123 Mon 26-Feb-07 22:36:07

Sounds lovely, and the job offer too by sister in law lives in chelmsford, a long way from you though, if I remember you are in Nofolk, are you considering it?

Katymac Tue 27-Feb-07 07:33:03

No - but was nice to be offered it
