So the ongoing childminder problem for september is nowhere near being sorted but that's something else...a rather more pressing worry is that our current cm is on holiday next week and we have no-one to look after dd3! My own fault for completely forgetting until midnight last night, whereupon I worried till 2am, and am now exhausted sad Anyone know of a carer/nanny/ all round nice person who would be prepared to have her on Mon and Tues next week?

How old is she? Also what kind of times were you looking at and where are you? I'm on holiday in Ireland at the moment but back Sunday. May not be able to help but might be able to suggest someone for you.

Have been a nanny in Ireland and Au Pair. Babysit loads of people in Cambridge who you could talk to. If you'd prefer to email i'm on clairemichelle23 @

She's 3 and a half, and we'd need somone mon and tues - 9am till around 4.30. Oh we're in south Cambridge city..

I've a friend who has a six months baby who might be able to help if you'd be interested? Can pop her an email if you would like? I'm in Teversham but would only be able to help one day so imagine it'd be better for your DD to have same person for both days.

That would be great - thanks. Can you let me know on re: charges etc?

Thank you!!

I have emailed you my friends email address. Believe she is around Mon and Tues.

Hope that helps

Hi Claire
Amoungst all those people you know do you by any chance know a brilliant, loving, mature, patient qualified, CCBR checked, active, out of work nanny?

Claire2301 Wed 05-Aug-09 13:49:24

Hey, Unfortunately I don't- I can certainly ask around as know a few nursery nurses who may know of someone. Are you looking for full time and are you in Cambridge?

Carmel206 Wed 05-Aug-09 14:25:13

Hi Claire
Yes we are in Cambridge (west part of city) looking for full time live out nanny .
The only problem is she must be absolutely perfect..think Mary Poppins!!! but in return the post is very easy just one almost 3 year old and a pick up from school. 5pm finish no babysitting- generous holidays no housework..most of the cooking is done if you don't count re-heating!

Will need at least three excellent references which i will want to take up verbally.

If know of anyone let meknow
Thanks Anne

Hi Anne, Will ask around and see if there is anyone. Sounds a lovely job- i'm used to 3/4 kids (Under 5!) so sounds very peaceful. Will let you know if I can think of anyone.
