Ok, I need some advice...I have mentioned this before but Im going to repeat myself and say it again. HOW on earth people live off the money they get from the goverment is beyond me, it cannot be done in my opinion. You cant bring up a child, pay rent and pay bills on a lousy £100 fortnightly! I do not come from a rich family and wont pretend that I do- we live in pverty as far as Im concerned. Yes Im sure there are people out there who are worse off than us, but there are also people out there who arent willing to work and sit on their arses all day long sponging off the state. I would LOVE to get some work, I would do ANYTHING to earn an extra bit of money, but being the way I am, thats clearly not going to happen. This is going to sound real sad I know, but some people work from home doing things like painting kiddies toys, filling envelopes etc: and what I would like to know is, as sad as it may seem to some, how do you get into that? I will not have my family struggle to survive or wonder where their next meal is going to come from and I WILL (If it kills me) give my son the best start in life that I possibly can, but on the money this state pays out, plus no support from babies dad, how can I do that?? Does anyone here know of a way that I can get into this work from home business? I dont care what its doing, even if its just sticking stamps on envelopes, it's better than sitting on my arse all day wondering how Im going to pay my phone bills and rent. Do u know of anyone whos got into this line of work at all?
