We decided not to set up the Christmas teee this year so we don’t feel upset no more fancy packed prensents under it.
So All the little pennies came together and I managed to gave my daughter a shopping spree day and a nice lunch yesterday. She was very happy and I was very proud of myself to manage to give as good Christmas to my daughter without a credit card or an overdraft on my bank account.
I will be off to food shopping today with gift vouchers I received from my work,colleagues and friends.
If anyone reads my post not in Iva yet but considering but having doubts, it is not the worst thing happen to you. It is the best decision i have ever made last 10 years in my life. I am having the best sleeps and I have lots of hope for future. Stepchange is so supportive and I know I can turn to them if I am having any difficulty.
Sorry for a very long post. I had so much support from lovely people in this forum and just wanted them to know I am doing well. Thank you for being there for me,for us..
God bless you all, Merry Christmas and have a happy new year

I am just happy I will be spending Christmas with the people I love (am a nurse so my first xmas off in 8 years) doesn't matter what is or isn't under the tree, half of it never gets used! This Christmas has been very tight but I don't have to worry about bills in January! Wonder how many people this Christmas are terrified of opening those January bills. All our families really want for us is to be happy and stress free. Have a lovely Christmas and I wish you all the best for the new year. Xxx
The best part of having an Iva I nearly forgot my postman’s face not that he has a horrible face but never liked him keep coming with those handful of bills
I am glad you are doing well as well moira.. I have 2 weeks break as I am working in a school so it will be lots of rest for me.. have a great Christmas:)
