I'm back.... again!

Not doing very well with the new years resolutions am I? Well to be fair the only one I'm not keeping up with is the blogging... oh and the weight loss, I guess something things never change!
So where have I been and what have I been doing this time to count for the lack of blog activity?

Well unfortunately not been anywhere, but I have had a mini trauma. At the end of January someone reported me to Ofsted for a number of reasons... I didn't know about this until I got a knock on the door from a particularly uppity Ofsted inspector one afternoon. She went through all the complaints/allegations that had been made, and by her attitude it felt as though I was guilty until proven innocent. Fortunately I had all paperwork up to date, and the children I had with me that day responded well to her questions. When she left her parting shot was about discussing the case with a colleague to decide if any further action was going to be taken. So as you can imagine I as left pretty shaken and upset. Even though I knew that all the complaints were totally untrue, it still shook me that someone could be so spiteful as to want to try and get me into trouble. It was only last week that I got a letter from Ofsted stating that there 'was no evidence of non-compliance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Welfare Requirements'.

So after all the tears, then the anger I am now calm and collected. My initial thought was to try and keep it all quiet, but I have nothing to be ashamed of. So there you go... reported and cleared and still being a good childminder.... even if I do say so myself.

So now all that is done and dusted I will once again try to make every effort to blog update each week.

I have a few LOs to share. These were done using the January kit from Sarahscards... gorgeous delicate colours, and even though I'm not a huge fan of floral papers I really liked using these. This LO was done last night... back to my favourite bright mix and match... I had a bit of an American Crafts thing going on last night... there are 3 different ranges on this LO and I have to say I am loving the new Heat Wave range... will be defo buying more of this at the crop on Sunday.Right not really much more to say at the moment... it was meant to be a quick post while the kiddos are napping after being at playgroup this morning... will be back soon as no traumas are planned to be happening in this life anytime soon ;)

Glad everything worked out how it should've with the Ofsted inspector.

Its a shame you were put in that position in the first place, but its amazing how some people can be nasty and vindictive for no reason.

Lovely to see you back Lou, what an awful position to be put in but I am glad that it has all been cleared up. Gorgeous LOs as always!

Louise, Really pleased to hear you have a clean bill from Ofsted. I am the husband of a childminder who also has a sever and completely unfounded complaint made against her.

It destroyed her health and state of mind. It has taken some four years to clear up and hundreds of letters . This is after SS and EYL gave a her an all clear. The issue was one mail Ofsted inspector who became obsessed with finding something out. So much so he lied on oath and fabricated evidence. It was only through a protracted exposure of evidence through freedom of information that the truth came out. My wife has been reinstate and the people involved are still working for Ofsted . No one gets sacked at Ofsted no matter what they do. If anyone has problems with Ofsted I am here to offer support . I know more about them that they do themselves after hundreds of letter to MPS and three different heads of Ofsted.
Some advice , any contact at all with Ofsted even by telephone get them to put in writing what has been said. In my wifes case most of the issues were taken from un recorded phone calls so going back 5 years. So well done for coming out in one piece. It really is a traumatic time. Best wishes Brian McGrath. ps childminding is wonderfully rewarding so make the most of it.

Hey Louise

Sorry to hear that you have been through the mill. Some people are just evil, plain and simple! I think you are great and some people are just idiots! I am so pleased it is all sorted now!

Looking forward to reading your blogs xxx
