CM Club : I'm pleased and annoyed

If it's possible to be both.
Pleased - Mindee 2's mum told me at the start of the week she was off on Friday, and Mindee 1's mum told me yesterday that she had muddled up and I wasn't having mindee1 on friday either. She is still going to pay me though. So I thought great, DH is off, and I'm off we can have a nice day together, and I always enjoy an unexpected day off. So that's me pleased.

Annoyed - well mindee 2's mum turned up at 8.30 to tell me that I wasn't getting him today as she was off, but her phone had been cut off so she hadn't been able to call me and her elctric had been cut off, and could I add this weeks bill on to next weeks as the Tax Credits hadn't gone in, apparently the tax credit people are saying that they need to pay everyone by cheque as they are having problems paying into bank accounts. One of the other CM's told me this has happened to a few people she knows.

Mindee 1 who was supposed to be here at 8(ish) still isn't here. no message to say we will be late, no phone call to say if he's ill. His mum is supposed to start at 9, even if she drops him off in next 10 minutes it's going to be after 10 when she gets into work.
I've tried calling, but there's no answer, but her DH was working last night so she may have her phone tunred down. I need to go and post some parcels and get some bread, don't know whether to just go, or hang around for 1/2 hour

Mindee 1's mum has finally decided to phone me. She is taking her older son to the Docs so will drop mindee of at 10 ish. Bet she doesn't come back for him if the older one is ill.
