As you all know i started back to work as a fulltime Dental Nurse after landing myself a brill job. I was so proud of myself for getting this post after not nursing for 11 years and this was my first interview so i was chuffed to bits. Anyways i have done two days work and love it and they love me, but that is short lived as i have now had to tell them i can no longer do it due to childcare costs. I cried myself to sleep last nite as i am iam completely devastated. There seems to be no childminders in my area that will pick up and take to school and the after school clubs just want to rip me of off charging £10.50 per child for 2 hours minding so it would cost me £9 per morning, £21 per after school and £30 for my 21/2 year old son for nursery per day. Can anyone else justify this. So the only way i could possibly work would be to leave my husband and then i would be paid so many benefits etc and childcare would be paid and free school dinners. It is so wrong. Any one can you advise i so want to go back to work and no i cannot qualify for tax credits as my hubby works. So what shall i do? I have lost all will power to do anything as i just keep hitting a brick wall and just can't seem to get stuck into a card to cheer me up either.
hugs a very upset Debra
