There are people who are in much worse positions than myself. My plans to visit my brother (first time in 3 years) for Christmas looks like being a difficult task having just been made redundant.
I have been struggling to pay off my credit card bills and had to dip into my overdraft when work couldn't pay our wages, with a promise of being paid a few days later. On the promised pay day, after a suprise directors meeting with 'suits' they went into liquidation. (no pay, though after a few weeks we should get some money though we wont get the expected pay over Christmas).
To make matters worse my boiler has packed it in and a new one will cost from £3000. The radiators are also failing, some wont work at all and none of the dials/settings on them work. (whole system is original from 1965). For now the radiators can wait.
To get me through the next few weeks i've had to take out a personnel loan, which with my other debts will be hard to pay off.
I have registered with employment agencies, as i want to stay in work and avoid relying on benefits (of which wouldn't cover my bills). I am hopefull to be in full employment as soon as possible.
Any help would be very much apprieciated.
