It's only 2 days a week - but it's great timing huh!

How rubbish, Katie.

No chance you want to look after mine after school for a pittance, I suppose?

KatieMaChristmas · 22/12/2004 22:50

No problem

Can you afford the train fare?

Do you live in Scotland?

KatieMaChristmas · 22/12/2004 22:52

I bet they'd love rural Norfolk actually tho I can spy a few practical problems...

KatieMaChristmas · 22/12/2004 22:59

yep - it can take several days to get here....but I do a very nice cooked tea.

and I'm really nice

So why have I got spaces/vacancies.....

Cos people don't know a good thing when they see it? Or cos there aren't enough working parents in rural Norfolk?

KatieMaChristmas · 22/12/2004 23:08

You are nice

I'm off to bed - but I'll comfort myself with the thought that it was a child I'm not particularily (sp) fond the one that's going to Nursery in Jan I'll really miss

But every time I've been short of children - something has turned up.....

New Years resolution - stop worrying
