Hi Springhope.....So sorry I am just going out...... This government website is very good. Every time I have looked into bankruptcy I have decided not to go down that path. I'm sorry that I may have confused you when you have already been getting advice from your financial counsellor

Thanks for your lovely messages and support everyone. It is much appreciated! All going well.....have been really busy.....a little bit of stress creeping in. I am talking about it with friends and family and that is helping. I had my grandchildren over on the weekend and we went to the farm school for the day which was nice. It is great having that extra money to do these things. Have a wonderful week!

Thanks for your support again everyone. I am blown away by how well everyone is doing....I have been reading all your posts!! I am a little tired, busy and stressed at the moment with my full time job and Rheumatoid Arthritis playing up in this weather. So I have not been posting very much. Sometimes at night I am coming home and eating rubbish food (which I don't normally do!!) then just crashing out!..... I have to get my act together and cook some meals on the weekend for throughout the week. This pattern of mine to take on a bit too much can lead to disaster, so I am on my guard. Writing about it here and talking to friends and family is great. I will work full time for another few months to catch up with bills and then drop back to 4 days hopefully. I am staying strong! One day at a time

Six months plus 14 days today!

Well done Jo.

Hope you are feeling better or i less pain at least.
I have started doing casseroles again now that the cooler weather is here to stay.
I need to start making more soup too. Potato and leek is the family's favorite .

I try to make a couple of dinners in one night as we are late sometimes with the kids activities after school and that's where we too grab take away if i haven't prepared.
It's lovely how much time we have to do things that bring us simple pleasures.
Much strength to you Jo 😊
