    its pants i swear, my mum maybe but who's ever got money around christmas to be honest? you will just have to keep your fingers crossed that it will come a few weeks early cos she said up to two weeks for the form and up to 3 weeks for it to be processed (was told elsewhere 4weeks) but im hoping :d it will be my christmas wish :D its okay though as we are still doing salt dough cookie as only need a tub of salt and im gonna get him to paint some piccies out his colouring book and stick the around... ive already brought a few of the kiddies pressies and thats what matters :) keep your fingers crossed for me and i might even do a lil christmas jig haha ps put my tree up today :D

    I would try for the crisis loan, a little is still better than nothing! We also can't afford decorations but it's probably a good idea this year as my daughter would be pulling down the tree/baubles every moment she gets :lol: At least you have some pressies for your babies! Hope your working tax credits come through in time xx

    I had to do my Christmas shopping at Very.com this year so that I can pay it off throughout the year. Could you look into something like that.
