    No I'm not toxy, only just started contacting. First invoice sure to be paid in a week and I'm wondering what sort of obscene appendage to buy from lh to celebrate! If you're after contractors I'd certainly be interested in the future though.

    Free Ki-Wi with luxury vibes! Ad's just bought the G-Ki and it only worked out at £45 with the Ki-Wi!

    When I said people I really meant the kids! They think we sleep in cupboards at school and get wheeled out when we are needed. They are amazed when they see us 'out' and often say "I saw you in Tesco miss" like it is some sort of revelation. She goes grocery shopping, surely not?!

    Hi VW

    It is great and you do build up a rappor with people, however you are right, it can be very sad and don't missuderstand me, I honestly do have tissues by the phone. However, at the time , it is all about "Remaining professional" but I do have a cry after .... x

    I used to work with a little boy who was severaly disabled and i used to have a little cry when i got home, but obviously i could never show him i was sad! so yes i understand about remaining professional,

    when i left my placement i never heard from any of them again and recently discovered he had passed away, i cried my bloody leg off, for a while i was thinking of working specifically with children with special needs but after that i knew i couldn't because i was always sad!

    I think that is a great thing for you to do, my nan lived for 14 years after my grandad died and i think she was quite lonely, she picked me up from school twice a week and looked after me for about 10 years but i don't think she would have used something like that as she didn't like being a burden to people bless her,

    Haha are you sure she didn't have a piece of my work from when i was younger ;] the second one i mean!

    i had terrible handwriting and never been artistic!

    in my nursery some of the things the kids could do were unbelievable, one child was 3 and could add and subtract, another was 4 and moving up to reception and could barely speak and couldn't point you to number two if you asked!

    but the first one wasn't as physically developed as the other, we all have our strengths i suppose!

    I have replied to this once but as my job's changed since then I thought I'd add another post.

    I'm a mechanical engineer, most of my working life (until January this year) was spent in the automotive industry (mostly specialising in test / development of diesel engines and associated components) but now I work for a company that makes process heaters for the petrochemical industry (helping to make the world a little bit more ugly :o/ ).
