Finally a light at the end of what feels like a very long tunnel.
Paul and I have been working flat out to redevelop the playroom and turn it into a multi purpose area for the children.

When the children have gone home for the day, Paul and I set to work decorating and installing new units. With just a little more painting nr the radiator, a freezer to install and the kickboards to be fitted to the front of the kitchen units, the playroom will finally be finished.

We were selected to be part of the HAF Funding scheme where we provide enrichment activities for vulnerable children free of charge during the summer holidays. Redeveloping the play area has now given us that little extra space to have a kitchen area for the children to have a go at preparing and cooking their own meals.

Playroom is coming along nicely. The right hand side is nearly completed just the trims to be fitted under the units. The left hand side needs lining paper above the radiator then painted and need to finish the grey sparkly cladding.
Hopefully all will be finished by the end of next week just in time for school holidays. X.

Old units all down now, walls are ready for painting and cladding and the room divider has arrived and been built.
Thursday the rest of the units will arrive and hopefully over the weekend, the playroom will have completed its transformation just in time for the school holidays. X x

This is my next project.
Once I have finished the right side of the playroom , I will start on the left. All these units will be removed to make more floor space for the children to play. X x

Everything is finally coming together. Flood gates now in, so no repeat of last year and units delivered for the playroom.
Spent all of last night levelling the two larder cupboards, fixing them to the wall and filling them up with crafts etc.
The rest won't be going in until after the 8th July as I made a few last minute changes so waiting on a few more units. At least I have made space in my lounge for me to sit on the sofa.

Our indoor area is getting a much needed face-lift to make room for a small kitchen area. Units have all been removed ready for Kitchen units which are arriving on Thursday. X x

[01/04/21]   IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT -

Paul and I would like to confirm that following Boris Johnsons announcement this evening, we will be open for business as usual.

We have worked relentlessly over the past year to ensure our setting is as safe as we could possibly make it for the children, whilst still allowing them to have fun. Our toys and resources are cleaning after each use and the room is 'fogged' every night, ready for the next day.

We would like to thank all our parents for abiding by the social distancing rules when dropping off and collecting their children.

Take care everybody and keep safe. X x x

[11/16/20]   21st ANNIVERSARY
Cant believe that I've actually made another milestone. On 15th November 1999 I received a visit from social services and was given the go ahead to start child-minding and here we are 21 years later still going strong.
Its not how I envisaged celebrating 21 years of child-minding, but hopefully when all this is over we can celebrate in style.

I would like to thank all the wonderful families that have supported us over the past 21 years and cant wait to share a drink with you.

Love days like today. Blue skies, with little bit of cloud coverage. We spent today watching clouds pass by.

Three weeks ago, when we had the flash flooding, our garden was affected quite badly.
With the help from friends the clean up began.

I would like to thank Heather, Steve and Marilyn for helping clean the children's play area, would like to thank Peter Williams Pellew Carpet & Flooring Ltd for the new flooring in the children's play area, but most of all would like to thank Dean Gallimore and his team BGS Landscapes, Fencing & Artificial Grass, for the huge transformation of my garden.

We managed to stay open throughout all of this causing minimal disruption for the children.

Thank you. X x

[09/04/20]   Today is an end of an era for 4 of our children as they start Primary School.
Paul and I wish them all the very best and feel very privileged to be part their lives

What a weekend, finally I have finished. Ball pit all cleaned and put back together ready for the start of another busy week. X x

08/08/2020

Hottest weekend so far and what do we do, strip the ballpit down and give it a good clean. Tomorrow will be the task of putting it all back together. X x

How to keep children occupied on a warm day. Oh dear, looks like Paul has come off worse.

16/07/2020

To ensure the safety of all our children Paul I have have a purpose built wash basin in the garden for the children to wash their hands upon arrival and throughout the day.
All toys are cleaned on an as and when used basis throughout the day then when the children have left for the day we use our new fogging machine which kills all bacteria in less than 1 minute. This is particularly useful in the ballpit area where handwashing all the balls would be very time consuming.

New outside area completed during lockdown. This area is under cover so children can access all year round, no matter what the weather. X x
