Hi, cPCu

I have 2 under 18 months and my own 4 year old. Guess who is the hardest work??? Plus I am a walking advert for MAJOR PMT .... My poor DH.

I am also trying to get paperwork together for EYFS and CM stuff in general because at TTOTM I am paranoid, and every time I phone rings I reckon it is OFSTED. Last inspection was June 2003 so I should be okay for a few months, shouldn't I????????

That seems to be the main concern now! That Bl**dy Inspection.

Dead Right! My own flesh and blood is driving me bananas. Fortunately he has a play date at 12 and the other two should then sleep for a couple of hours.

Roll on 6pm!

Afternoon ladies (and gents if nick pops in)!

We have spent this morning doing crafts, as was having my new oven put in! We have just had lunch and ds4 and mindee are either asleep or laying down and the others (ds1, ds3 and mindee 8yrs) are either playing the wii or playing tents. we are going to go for a walk later once little ones have slept and try and buy some clay to make pots and bits.

My inspection was april 06, so I am also beginning to get myself into inspection mode - hence updating portfolio etc

Have a good rest of the day grin

Hi everyone.

DS not happy today! sad

Hi every1! A bit late but but been out all day to stop myself going mad. dd and ds full of cold and very grumpy sad. Do you think 2 months and no enquiries is long enough before giving up and going back to teaching? I had 1 enquiry... asking if I wanted to take on an assistant! PLEASE send kiddies my way!

tulip31 Tue 28-Oct-08 16:43:37

Mum - where are you? Sometimes if I get enquires I pass them on to others (full at mo - only 1 sapce for under 5).

Has this done before - have we said where we are all located so that if close we could pass on enquires, meet up etc???

mumnosbest Tue 28-Oct-08 16:52:33

Thanks tulip! I'm from Doncaster. I have 2 under 5's of my own so only 1 F/T place and wrap around school places to fill. Talking to other local CMs, everyone seems to be in the same boat.
