tonight i was on tv
this is me on tv on my tv
they didn’t have space for my full name he he!
what a strange day
itv crew rocked up at 7am
filmed us getting ready for nursery and work
jumped in the car with me and rooster to nursery
came with me to work, we nattered all the way
caused mild hysteria in the work car park
met me back at the nursery for pick up
came home with us and filmed our evening
sat us down and asked us lots about
being working parents
probable be edited down to 1 minute!
meet harriet and catherine
so last week i delved into my coat pocket to be starkly reminded of what our child care costs amount to each month. OUCH. i spoke on the radio about it and the lovely people at LBC fell over in shock. it is indeed more than our mortgage.
today in the press and on the news there were numerous articles/reports on how nursery costs are rising by nearly 6%, and that fewer families are now getting any help at all with these, following the childcare tax credit cuts back in april.
the hot topic this week is all about mothers, working and what that all costs. weirdly on tuesday i pulled a piece of paper from my pocket to find OUCH. the very next day i received a call from LBC radio to chat to nick ferrari about childcare costs in the uk capital and what impact this is having on london families. two days later i get tagged in a meme, a mothers working meme to be precise. tagged by the daily mum and started by pret a mummy (bargain mummy) and mother.wife.me. spooky.
