It's something that will probably be happening a lot more often anyway, because at 2.40 this afternoon I recieved a call, offering me three weeks work in the solicitors sister office in Wedmore, as a prelude to starting the real trainee legal exec job in the Weston office.
I said yes, and shot off to collect LMB & Mstr A from school. I collected LMB, and did ask if she could start full time, knowing that there wasn't a hope. As the only council pre-school in the town, it's pretty oversubscribed, and they've already sent out a letter saying don't ask for any extra sessions until January! They did promise to check, but admitted it was incredibly unlikely. On to plan B.
On they way home we stopped off at the pre-school/nursery round the corner. Both LMB & LMD used to go there part time when I worked before. They had a FT place for LMB, but only a couple of days for LMD. I took it. Mstr A's school does have an after-school club, but I don't have a phone no. for them - I'll have to phone the school on Monday. I feel there may be some serious work for Nanny A for a few weeks till I get childcare properly sorted:-)
I'm not sure if we'll be able to get LMB's funding transferred - apparently it's up to the pre-school. I know it's only 2 1/2 hours a day, but it still works out at about £60 a week.
Still, on the whole, I think a hurrah is in order:-) I'm sure I'll get the childcare sorted out sometime.
