It is already very difficult to remember the optimism I had a week ago in my post about The future – this week has happened and with it has come a further notch on the ‘degrees-of-financial-urgency-ometer’ and the knowledge that the local authorities charged by policy and by their own word with supporting people in our situation have utterly failed. For the past 9 weeks.
And so once again we are in the situation of going begging to our families to enable us to make rent (which they are more than happy to do) and I think, despite the fact that it pains me to keep drawing on their hard earned cash over and over again, that I am doing it graciously.
Because honestly there’s nothing left, except saying thank you and wanting to cry.
On a cheering note
