Working Mum's Dilemma (Part 2)

My 2 boys have just come home with their nanny - they always have such a great time with her. No matter what the weather they are doing something out and about



Today they have been out tobogganing, and then to the library, then back home with some friends to make Xmas biscuits.

When I look after them on my day off, their only trip out is to Tesco's

9 times out of 10 I have to take a work call, so they are forced to be quiet, which doesn't come naturally to either of them.

Other "fun" things that they get to do with me are haircuts, shoe shopping (theirs, not mine, I might add), trips to B&Q and opening the door to another electrician, plumber, chimney sweep!

It is no surprise that they relish the days with their nanny and ask with trepidation on my day off "Mummy, what have you got planned today?".

I think what I need is a "house manager", but one who can also read my mind

Someone that instinctively knows what needs doing in the house, or what errands need running - and just gets on and does it.

Leaving me to swan off to Legoland or pottery painting with my boys on my day off, or even just to sit for one hour without interruption with them.

Father Christmas, if you are listening...

Everyone I spoke to at Tinies, from my initial enquiry to book for our wedding, to on the day, were absolutely brilliant. So friendly and accommodating, nothing too much to ask for. The toys and activities they had for the children on the day was so much more than we could have asked for. The children had THE best time, t-shirt making, watching films, colouring, playing with toys, mini disco! Everything you could think of. There were even bean bags and snuggly blankets for later on when the children wanted to snooze. I would highly recommend using Tinies for any event you may have, especially a wedding. Thank you for being so amazing from beginning to end! xxx
