Good Luck. I'm off from daytime job for next two weeks, so I am currently in a coffee shop, while my car is getting a service. Met a new family yesterday who have booked two evenings, so evening work is starting to pickup a little. Hope today goes well with your new mindees.
Happy lunchtime to you all. Well I have dropped DD and older mindee at school and then took younger mindee to CM group for chat and play. The weather here the last 2 days has been dry, long may that last. Hope you all have a lovely day .
Hi All, glad everyone is having good day and things are going well SK..i also have 2 new midees (afterschhol) starting today..both been here before so quite mellow and looking forward to it
having a 'moment' trying to explain to new parent (starting end of month) that a retainer (as it says in my policies which she has) is weekly, if someone else needs the sapc!, i know i should charge from day one until day they start but im soft and 'thought' id explained the situation!..now mum says she thought it was one off fee, but im now lsoing out on £135 A WEEK as i had to tunr mindees sister away !
Hi everyone, hope you are all having a nice day with new ones/days off etc. Sorry to hear of all your troubles KM. I dont post that often but I do read most of the threads on a daily basis.
Ive had the day off today, yipee, so just been doing some EYFS stuff with another childminder. 2 heads are better than one. Done know if you have read my other thread EYFS hows it all going - BCMA was mentioned. If you havent had chance to look please do, they have done most of the EYFS work for you. Its brill.
Only one mindee left now as other has just gone! We had a good and fun day today. Now school is back on and dd is off there we are getting ourselves back into a routine which is good! We had lots of good (albeit rather messy!) fun this afternoon and my clothes are splatted with paint!
Just going to do dd some dinner (other mindee goes soon too) and then going to Sainsburys to complain about the fruit I bought on Saturday that has gone mouldy already and is not out of date yet. I'm usually just through it away but I refuse when it costs me loads a couple of days ago!
Hope your day with new mindees went well Sammy and pc! Get tough with the retainer PC, they are trying it on.
Hope you're ok Katy and not too tired. Hope the open day goes well but is a shame you can't be there.
Lucky you with no rain ML! Saying that, we have been ok today and actually have washing on the line (although not really drying as not warm enough!)
Having fun with my 4 and 3 minded! My dc3 has taken a liking to a new mindee (boy 8yrs), and is being very in his face wanting to play etc, and the mindee isn't taking it too well! Oh well I think this is going to be the start of a long week!
I would have made Rice Krispie cakes, far easier than biscuits. Hope people turn up tomorrow Katy... pity you won't be there. Hope your staff handle it well.
I've decided to visit my elder sister in Cornwall this weekend. Google maps says it's about a 5 hour drive. Hmm... I wonder. Anyone able to give a view as to how long it will take to drive from M3 Junction 3 to say St Austell - looks like the route is quite on the A303 (so slow past Stone Henge). Any suggestions on where to stop for a break also appreciated (else it will be Morrisons in Yeovil as that has a cafe).
Hi everyone, I have namechanged, I was Jojo 76 and asked if i could join a couple of weeks ago! Ive been on holiday for the past week, back to work next week though. Was wondering if anyone has had a new style inspection yet?
