Well we’ve moved, finally im standing on my own two feet. It’s been stressful, overwhelming and I think I must have gone through every emotion known to man. I’m happy that I’m finally starting my new life with my son but at the same time I’m constantly worried about money mostly.
I’m private renting as the council list was taking to long for my liking and I just needed a way out of my life and the place i was in. It’s more expensive than council housing, but it’s a gorgeous house so it’s worth it. I get housing benefit but I still have to use my money to pay the rest of the rent myself. I drive so I have my car to run and obviously Alfie is the most expensive! He constantly eats, he’s a growing boy so I spend quite a bit on food and clothes for him.
Thankfully I was quite organised before I moved and started getting his next size up clothes bought and packed away so I don’t need to worry about clothes for a few months. That doesn’t count for me but I wear the same old rubbish day in, day out but oh well. No one looks at me so who cares!
I’m still getting used to being on my own, ive always lived in a house bursting with people so it’s a lot different but so relaxing. I do find it ain’t boring when alfies at his dad’s but my sister pops round to see me. Alfie is finding it very different, he’s settling in slowly but surely. He doesn’t seem to listen to me at all at the minute but that’s just a two year old toddler for you! Our new house is one minute walk from the park so I try and take him to the park and we actually don’t live far from where we go swimming now so I want to make sure we go swimming weekly as he loved it last time and it’s only £3.50 for us both.
I will get round to showing you all around our new house this coming week so keep an eye out for those posts!
