My 3 children were just 5,7,9 when i became single,you can see from the photo they have indeed all grown up a little! Life hasnt been easy over the last 11 years,we slept on 2 mattresses between us for 2 years, often not enough money to eat more than beans on toast....however we always had each other and still always knew that meant we were well off. We gave up time and even Christmas day to help in local homeless shelter. Jade is now 20,she left at 16 for Army life and has been selected to be on the shooting team,she has now been asked to do the gun salute at Edinburgh castle on 3rd June this year. I am so proud and desperately want to go,but cant afford the flight and hotel,which is why i need this. ????????
