I just wanted to give all of you a message of hope for when times are tough!

Just before Christmas I was really worried - lost two sibling mindees when their dad got made redundant and knew I was losing my longest mindee at the end of January cos his mums having a baby. DH very unhappy in his job to the point that he quit. He had another job lined up to start 10th January but the money wasnt very good.

Then he had a call to go to Manchester for an interview on the 7th January - they offered him the job and he started on the 11th and cos the money is really good (he's gone contracting) I was able to give notice to my last mindee so that I can concentrate on my own children for a while.

And then...my inheritance money came through!! So we are going on holiday to.....

AUSTRALIA:clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

next year!!! Can't wait - its my longest held dream ever to go there!!!!!!!

So the moral is that I went from feeling really low to suddenly everything is working out. Life's not perfect - would rather have my grandma here than the money - but its going pretty good.

So for all of you out there having it tough- hang on in there and it WILL get better and I'm sharing positive vibes to everyone.

Feel the love:group hug:
