..and all but 2 of my pupils have come back
It's going well...I'm only teaching Monday and Thursday evenings (frm 4.30pm) and Saturday mornings because it's when OH can be around for baby-duties and they've all fitted in to those slots well, though I am teaching back-to-back now without a break in between lessons (had to - to fit them all in).
I've got a waiting list - and cos I've got a waiting list, my existing students are all suddenly really reliable!! One family have paid me for a full month of lessons they can't attend because they want me to keep their slot open for them (I offered to put them on the waiting list, but they wanted to keep their slot)
So T&C work!! (lesson to all!!)
The only downside is that every man (and his dog) want to see "the baby" (who does have a name!!) It's quite difficult when they're in and out in half an hour with the next one waiting to come in straight away. If "the baby" is in the kitchen with the OH I let them peek through the glass (a lot of them bought him presents so thought it only fair they get a look!!)
But then....one girl's Grandma brought her one week. I'd never seen her before...and she said "oooh xxx told me I'd be able to see "the baby""
Then one of my adults said "when I pick my certificate up from my exam can my Mum come too cos she loves babies..." and I'm like
i've lost my longest-standing pupil which is sad Been teaching her since I started but she found another teacher while I was on leave (think her Mum was worried I'd be having another baby in the near future...not a chance!!)
So it's all going good
