Well that’s it, what can I say 😭
I’m overwhelmed by the generosity, kindness and support been given by all my parents 🥰 It’s been a strange old day, but we have kept busy with squirrels, and a sneaky baguette and chippy lunch at the church and a nice quiet tea.
It’s been 7 fabulous years and I can honestly say I will miss each and everyone of you, both children and parents. Please, please keep in contact, I will still love to see and hear how everyone is getting on.
You will all have a forever space in my heart ❤️


Last day ………😢😁🥰😍😢🤪🥳🤗😭😭😭


Happy Father’s Day you lovely bunch. Hope you have the best day # # #


It is with great sadness that I am closing my childminding business.
It’s been 7 wonderful years, but an opportunity has arisen and it’s time to move on to a new adventure.
I would like to thank all past and present parents and children. It has certainly been a rollercoaster of a journey especially with Covid thrown into the mix too.
Thank you to friends and family who have supported me throughout. Thank you also to all the other childminders in shifnal, you do an amazing job and have become life long friends.
Look out for me selling toys and equipment as I return my house back into a family home.
I will miss each and every one of you 😭


Just a reminder…..
I am open Tuesday Wednesday Thursday this week.
Next week I am open Monday 5th June, then I will be closed until Wednesday 14th June. I will be back open on Thursday 15th June.

Bit of coronation craft today


Worth a read for those who have children that go online……


Apologies for any inconvenience.
It seems the only way to get to my house is via Bovis estate , up to the top and round, as they have closed the entrance to Taylor wimpey Burlington fields. I’m not too sure how long this will be for. But as soon as it’s back open I will let you know. It is still accessible on foot.
Sorry for any inconvenience and lack of notice xx

Let’s have a healthier 2023 # # #

Children told to stay home from school if sick amid flu, Covid and scarlet fever The advice to parents at the end of the Christmas break comes amid high levels of flu and Covid cases.


Its that time of year when I’m humbled by your generosity.😍🎄🎅Thank you all so much for our Christmas gifts 🎁 It brings a tear to my eye 🥺I’m grateful you chose me to be apart of your child’s journey.
It’s been another crazy year with operations and illnesses and Covid still in the air. In the 6 years of childminding I’ve never had to take so much time off before, and for that I apologise and thank you for your continued support and understanding. Things can only get better. 😜 so here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas and a much healthier 2023.


A perfect last morning before Christmas.
We joined Shifnal's Shooting Stars - Childminding and headed for Mere Park garden centre.
We saw fish, a giant Father Christmas, the kind man showed us the train set, we wrestled with dinosaurs and played with a jumbo jet and finished it all off with a gingerbread man and a spot of colouring.
Merry Christmas everyone 🎅🎄


As we head in to the last few days, can I kindly remind you of the below. ……
From covid to colds to chicken pox to sickness to coughs…… I really want to be,and want your children to be,and want you guys to be …..well for Christmas. 😍🎅🎄


I’m afraid I will have to close again today.
All these bugs need to go now I’ve had enough # # #
Sorry for any inconvenience 😥

I will be back open as normal tomorrow.
Be prepared for a cold slippy walk to school ❄️⛷☃️🌨
