When It Rains, It Pours.  -

I’m sorry you’re having such a rough time of it – no helpful advice, just sympathy. I could have a big rant about UK childcare (it is 100% not an option for us right now) but I’m sure you know it all already.

Thanks, lovely. UK childcare is a huge money maker – and definitely not pro people who work full time. It frustrates me to no end.

Ahhh this blows. However when stuff like this happens you can to remember the old saying ‘what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger’.
Are you able to do one less shift at work and drop a nursery day to make a saving, or would it not work like that? Or maybe look for a childminder to replace one of the days so they can have him all day (often a bit cheaper than nursery too) OR win the lottery… as if!

Sending love and hugs and hope your stepmum is feeling better soon x

Thanks for the lovely comment. Really appreciate it.

We’re still working things out at the moment – but I don’t think I can lose any hours as I get paid slightly more than what goes out for nursery, so I don’t want to lose that extra cash. It’s definitely not off the cards though. We’re looking at all avenues right now.

Childminder is also looking good – had no idea how much cheaper they were! I’m just hoping T will enjoy it as much as nursery.

Lotto win would be soooooooo good.

I hope by writing all this down you feel slightly better? It sounds like a shit situation my love and I’m not sure what I would advise. Have you got any friends that could help out?

Kate Everall says:

Thank you – it did help. Unfortunately we don’t have any other friends or family nearby that could help or would be available at that time as they have their kids. Frustrating but that’s life!

I’m sure it’ll work out in the end!

I’m so sorry you’ve been going through such a tough time. I do hope that things are getting a little easier now (aware you wrote this ages ago and I’m just catching up).
Nat.x
