Bad news re job
15 Jan 2009
well, this morning we,ve decided that David is going to go for the job and we will see how it goes. Have been told by the hospital that i can request days to work like in UK but obviously not guaranteed. We are going to look for a babysitter as well for when i have to work lates. So feeling slightly better about things today. David has also put in about 6 applications already this morning so you never know, maybe something else will turn up. Things happen for a reason, as always! What a emotional rollercoaster this is!!!

thanks for messages guys, bit of a set back but sure something will turn up.
I did expect the hospital to be a bit more accommodating though as it wasnt much to ask for! oh well, back to the job hunting. House front seems good though, at least that has been sorted, just need a second income to help pay the rent, lol!

well, david has had to say no to the job. i contacted the hospital where i will be working and explained that he would be working monday to thursday nights and that on those days could i possibly work early shifts, other days i would be ok to do any shift. no, they wont do it, how crap is that. Nursing is supposed to be family friendly! considering they are short of nurses here and im only asking to work earlys on those days,its pretty poor of them i think. oh well, that was our bubble burst today, and we have found a rental, differnet one as the one we thought we were going to get we didnt. then i had a nightmare trying to find out if the local school does before and after school care which we will now need for harry. luckily, there is one or we would have had to look for another rental! now david is back to job hunting and we are both feeling pretty fed up as you can imagine, it all seemed too perfect i suppose. On a brighter note, sorting out rental at the weekend, got a lovely 2 storey house , 5 beds with pool in woodvale so my girls will be pleased as promised we,d get a house with a pool!
