I have told carer that i will pay for 1 text a day so she can let her family know she is ok. She can recieve texts for free. I really do not want to be paying for her to text her mates all the time. The whole holiday is paid for her and all her meals. She will also be getting 20 hours a week extra pay. I did tell her to start i will not pay for every hour she is away and she agreed to this when we booked the villa last August.
