The Great Christmas Clean Up

Well, here we are. Another Christmas over and done with



The cards have been put into the recycling bin (or if you're really keen, cut up into present tags for next year), mountains of wrapping paper and evidence of your over indulgence have all been carted away in bags and boxes, clinking and clunking as they went and the fading tinsel and baubles now drooping sadly from bald, needleless branches are packed away for another year.

And what are we left with after Christmas?

A layer of dust and a dent in the bank balance?

Of course, but also hopefully some great memories too. Despite feeling the strain financially like everyone else, I always have a period of reflection after Christmas and quite frankly I miss it when it's over. It's almost as if I just relax into it and then it's gone, whipped back up into the attic, not to be spoken of again until the following October!

I must admit that I am a Christmas nut (!)

I know plenty of people who are only too pleased to see the back of it all - humbugs!

To be serious though, even I can see that there is a very nice feeling of fresh air and positivity once you've had a good dust, polish and hoover through. I feel thoroughly de-cluttered and find myself looking forward to the nights drawing out, snowdrops peering out of the ground and a few green buds on the trees.

Normality can resume

The kids can finally bound back into the garden onto the trampoline and release some of that pent up energy and normality can resume. Who knows, there might be the possibility of getting a babysitter and escaping from the kids for the night or even the distant dream of a short holiday on the horizon.

We have worked with Tinies Brighton for a number of years when looking for both temporary and permanent nursery staff. What impresses us most about Tinies Brighton is the way in which they always ensure that they understand our requirements, whether the position is for an entry level childcare practitioner in a 25 place nursery or a nursery manager at a 120 place nursery. Tinies has developed a thorough knowledge of our business and our culture and only ever puts forward applicants who fit our specification, thus saving our business a significant amount of time and cost by not having to interview candidates who are unsuitable. We would thoroughly recommend Tinies Brighton to any childcare business in the area.
