@mylittlepony; thanks for your reply!
I completely agree with you about your point of the employer. I thought the same thing. And he has 2 young kids!! How did he think I could magic up childcare in 2 weeks?!?? I was quite angry over the weekend
and will definitely be having a chat with him next week.
Re; the husband, to be fair, he is hands on but he’s very optimistic that things will just fall into place whereas I panic at things out of my control. I can’t control the quality of candidates, when their availability is, if they even want to work for us, etc etc!
Appreciate all your advice! May I ask how long did it take you to find your nanny from start of the search to him/her starting?
Many thanks!! xxx
