goodmorning all. feeling like crap today, got out of hospital to find out parent, that i mentioned oin thursday had tried to drop her son off on friday. the woman just doesnt see to live in the real world! i've e-mailed her a notice of immediate contract termination. i've had enough!

i'm spending the day in bed today to recover and may consider getting up tommorow grin

hope everyone is having a good day and thoes who are sick are better.

Oh dear, though sounds that terminating the contract is what may be needed to get the message through.

I'm taking my nephew for a walk around a local nature reserve today, then off to meet a family with twins (who had contacted me 3.5 years ago for advise about hiring a nanny - now are looking for evening care... I wonder if they ever did get a nanny). Then I'm cat feeding for a family I used to nanny for, then off to babysit a 2 year old. So usual sort of day for me.

OMG Leoni, you are well rid, I cant believe she tried to drop hm off.

I must have missed something as well, did you end up in hospital?

Well done for giving notice. With parents like her it's just one thing after another IME.

Finished up last night at 6.45pm. Was in bd for 8.15pm to try and feel ok for my MN meet up tonight. Feel ok atm but i tend to feel more shit as the day goes on sad

Thanks - there are quite a few of us that have lost children just before Christmas

aGalChangedHerName Sat 20-Dec-08 16:49:25

I never feel i can relax in this job. It sucks doesn't it?

My families atm seem happy and last reviews indicated that they were not planning to leave but you can never be sure can you?

Hope you have a good Christmas with your family anyway xx

Too knackered Nick

No time to read through as in middle of rushing around doing last min stuff (can't wait to finish and go to bed, hardly slept last night as my baby and baby mindee kept me up most of the night!). Just wanted to wish everyone a HAPPY CHRISTMAS if I don't get a chance before Christmas Day. I'm off to my parents tomorrow then it's funeral next day, wake then rush back and start preparing for Christmas as we're now entertaining due to what's happened. Soooo, I probably won't get on again before.

Hope you all have a good one and catch up soon xxx smile
