    I have finally decided when I am returning to work :(

    I had been putting it off for so long, but I finally got round to sorting it out today.

    I got in touch with job centre about my MA and know when I am being paid until.

    Well my wonderful OH has kindly agreed to let me go back in sept. So we do not have to worry about childcare for Liv over the school holidays.

    It is gonna be a struggle, so any tips on how to survive on little money will be very welcome, lol.

    Pointless thread and I am rambling, just can't believe it's official I have to go back :( it's gone way too quick.

    :hugs:

    You know what heartache I went through going back so make the most of those extra few months hun!

    I'm not sure about how to cope money wise as thankfully thats one of the things we at least have sorted with me back. We did struggle towards the end though but I just made sure I met up with friends often, had people over to mine etc. Things that didnt cost money but kept me occupied.

    Good luck lovely.
