Hired help

I've been running around tidying the house, but is it worth it? After all, if the nanny who is visiting this evening decides she will look after K (and vice versa) then she'll soon discover what slobs we really are!

I'd really have preferred a childminder; they are cheaper (I think), there would be other kids for K to mix with and the childminder wouldn't have to know about my lack of cleaning abilities. Oh and having a nanny sounds far too posh.

My dilemma, as I mentioned before, is that I never know what days I am working. This nanny is prepared to work ad-hoc so, even though she's not cheap, at least I'd only be paying for the days I need her. I've done some calculations though and once I pay my tax, work travelling costs, and pay for the nanny I will probably not get change from the bottle of wine that I'll need after a day at work.

And I hope she's not attractive. I might have to have a rethink if she is.
