Childminder's Club:Really annoyed & let down

And it's all my own fault!!!!
A mum approached me at school an monday (I do occassional minding for her children) and asked if I could do before & after school and all summer holidays.
I said "yes...maybe, no it's OK, I'll reorganise and they will be OK"
Dad came and collected them today and said not holidays and not to start until Sept
I spent all afternoon yesterday and all morning today reorganising and changing peoples day's & organising transport for the holidays so that they could come....and I'm really pissed off
Life's not fair.......and yes I do know it was never intended to be

Bit rotten of them to let you down like that.
Sounds to me like they were just sounding you out - why don't people realise this is our livelihood and not just a little pastime? (you can probably tell I'm getting a bit of messing about with just now too!)
Move on KM! Their loss .........
