"I parked the car, paid my ticket for parking and took Lauren to the nursery
door - only to be greeted by the staff from the nursery with the unfortunate
news that there was something wrong with the building today
(not quite sure what, but they weren't letting anyone enter the building)."
Lauren's new nursery has been closed down by the landlord for non-payment of rent.
They have burly security guards turning away the children, parents and staff! I'm not kidding!
According to the nursery management team, the landlord (Hammersmith NHS Trust - irony doesn't even come close) have been paid but have been having difficulties within their payment administration areas and are therefore incorrect about the non-payment.
Anyway the Lawyers are involved and the nursery remains closed.
I've contacted the old nursery asking for a 1 month extension to Lauren's care, and I hope they say that is OK, as otherwise we are carer-less next week.
We must be cursed. We are gutted. :(
