So I have not been able to find a job for over a year due to people not being very keen on hiring me when they find out I have been in and out of hospital due to mental illness, because I've been under the compulsory treatment mental health act in the last couple years I have to disclose it on job applications which sucks!

However I have found myself a little domestic cleaning job and also a nanny job lookin after three little girls starting next year! They know about my mental health issues but are giving me a chance anyway which is all I want as I know im a hard worker and I know I can prove myself. The little girls speak only Maori so I have to brush up on my Maori language as im not quite fluent yet! But I will really enjoy that next year! Yay for good people giving others a much needed chance!

Thanks Heather :-)

Yeah I will really enjoy having to learn more. I know enough to communicate with the kids but more is always better! They are 8 year old twins and a 5 year old so it will be a nice busy fun year for me doing what I like most. Im so so over the moon happy as I may be able to finally find somewhere safe to live and be able to afford to support myself.

This is AWESOME nixie, I'm so glad to hear that you've found this job!

Good luck brushing up on your maori! I think with younger kids it's often easier to communicate when there's a language barrier because kids tend to have more imaginative ways of solving these problems, so it should go smoothly!
