It’s a bit of a wrench, but over the last little while i’ve started to acknowledge that i’m not giving my best anywhere at the moment. So i’ve been mulling over some options, because Lucy decided to halve her hours with me, and i think i might have come up with a plan.
A new nursery has opened in the business park opposite, which as well as being a standard place, has a Montessori room and directress in situ. I’ve just chatted to the manager, who was home educated 🙂 , and Josie and Amelie could do 1 day a week, 9-4 for £56 for the 2 of them minus a nursery voucher for Amelie. Bargain. For less than £200 a month i’ll get a day a week of relative calm, which added to 2 days a week of student and Lucy being back to cleaning (plus hopefully Baby-Flowers mummy helping me out too) things will begin to look up.
The nursery looks nice, going to see it this week; it is 2 minutes drive away and they have a policy of taking siblings to see each other whenever they ask, plus non-napping smalls spend lunchtime with the older ones. So it really might suit them both very well.
I really hope so.
