pc thats awful. why dont you ring them all.

PinkChick Wed 13-Aug-08 10:33:28

two of them have arrived, the one who was due at 6.30 this morning, is still not here!, mum sent a text saying someone will drop mindee of later as she didnt sleep well!..we were due at play session at 10am!!!!..hav no idea who is dropping her off, dont know anyone other than parents, so no numbers, mum not answering phone or text messages and we planned to go out at 11.30 to park!..cant do any more can i!?..and its not fair to keep 3 other children in all day waiting, so we're going to ahev to go!

Hope you went, PC

Jilly, don't let the weather put you off, take spares plus wet gear smile you'll be fine.

Both mindees are asleep, we went out for a wet walk first thing - off out again after lunchtime.

Have a good day all

PinkChick Wed 13-Aug-08 12:18:00

urgh, i feel so ill??..came over feeling sick about houra go, was sick and stomache really aching, no more sick, just feel it and feel very light headed??

mindee turned up at 11, started pouring down shortly after and then this!
baby (well 18 month old) asleep now, mindee's just having lunch then playing with play doh or watching dvd..really feel bad!???

SammyK Wed 13-Aug-08 12:41:31

Aaw PC hope you feel better soon. Sounds daft but have you stopped for yourself today? Eaten real food / sat and had a drink? I only ask as if I have a hectic morning I feel like this. Get them engrossed in something restful and chilld for ten minutes. smile Hope you feel better soon.

I didn't get attachments last time but got the new ones you sent thanks so much.

I have a new family coming at two yone must keep everything crossed for me! grin

Jilly - don't trust the weather - take those little macs you will have fun. Save aquarium for winter!

Boys - I took my boy mindees out for a wet walk yesterday and thought of you! grin

Hi all! Horrible weather so we have stayed in as have 4 under 5's and one is new mindee so still settling in! Also had a friend here with her 2 so it's been a house full. They have no gone and baby mindee sleeping. Other currently relaxing watching a bit of tv as all tired after having so much fun this morning! I'm knackered tho!!

PC, can't believe they didn't turn up til 11am. I would have gone out I think. Sorry your not feeling well either, that's not good. I hope they are behaving for you.

Hi everyone else too

SammyK Wed 13-Aug-08 14:59:59

My meeting went well. Mum was lovely and has paid a deposit to hold the place. smile smile

Only thing is I had put on the contracts 9.30 and mum now wants to do handover at school at 9. I only used photocopied contracts though so I could maybe review them a few weeks in if things going well? I should have re written them I know but was caught off guard and went all people pleasing. hmm

BoysAreLikeDogs Wed 13-Aug-08 17:56:15

Sammy - grin

Hope you feel better PC

Jilly - enjoy Legoland

SB - hope you had a good afternoon

IMum - it's a pest when your planning goes up the swanney.

Right, off to have a look at the rest of MN, catch you all again
