Right I know I''m feeling sorry for myself but it makes me sooo angry I feel like I should be standing in a crowded street screaming....
I have given up my home, got rid of all and every non essential bill, got my budget down by over 600/month,found a job that will pay the bills. Everything I can do I have done and what''s my reward - well you can survive now you don''t need maintenance.
I don''t want to survive I want to live too. I want the odd hair cut, to buy new clothes rather than what I can find in charity shops, go dancing, be able to buy my kids a pizza out or go to the cinema with them. None of which is possible on my salary.
I want to be nice mum occasionally not just tired grumpy skint mum. I want to be able to replace something that''s broken not just gaffer tape it up or do without.
