In the excitement of being accepted onto the PGCE course in September, there was just one thing that prevented me from being overjoyed. From September, I will not longer be able to enjoy spending five days a week with Evelina. Not only that, I need to find someone who is suitable for the job of looking after her for the extra three working days.
At the moment, I am looking for a childminder rather than a nursery place. With the changing hours and the fact that Rich is often travelling, I need a bit of flexibility with the hours. I want to find someone who is prepared to be flexible, who I like and who will take good care of Evelina. It’s so important that I find the right person – I don’t think I will really be able to get fully excited about starting my training until I find someone who is practically perfect in every way.
