New Chapter, Onwards & Upwards

Today marks a new and exciting time in my life. After being in unemployed for the last four months or so things are now starting to look brighter. A lot brighter.

Today I attend my first 'Childminders Briefing Session'. Nobody was more surprised than my very close friends that I was choosing to go into child care. I have always been very adamant on the subject of not wanting any children of my own. Not to say I don't adore other peoples kids. Including my best friend KG's child. Now I have had time over the last two months or so (when I first decided this was something I wanted to do) to go with it or not to go with it. And I feel more than ever that this is something I am going to love to do. At the end of the day I'm going to be self employed and working from home.

With my mum already a registered childminder I see that I'm going to have a slight advantage here. I already know what I'm getting myself into (paperwork wise etc) and I know that if I have any questions she'll be a great help. After all she has been a registered childminder herself for over 15 years.

So here's to the start of a new chapter.


  1. Cheers to you!!! That's so exciting to be starting a new chapter, and I am wishing you all the best of luck!
