    Re my debts they currently stand at 16400 i did for a spell try too manage them myself but i found it an absolute nightmare getting everything swapped back. Net result come the end of January everything is getting handled by step change.

    I have being off work for quite a long period of time but this month its a bright future i have had my first decent pay in 3 months. 1400 yay i thought for a moment i was going too have to cancel xmas.

    I'm glad to see your new diary, it's a fresh start and the beginning of properly moving on.

    Has anything been sorted about the dogs or is she just keeping them all?

    Are you planning on staying with your aunt and uncle long term?

    Ahh I ocasionally had a look at your old diary so sorry to hear about your split.

    I split with my ex in Dec 2013 and it wasn't a good time in my life. We'd been together 6 yrs and had a whopping mortgage. He moved out to live with his new 'woman' in Feb 14 and it took me a further 12 months to sell the house (he stopped paying the mortgage after 6 months) hence where a lot of my debt has come from (I had all the equity so he had nothing to lose).

    But 3 yrs on, life is good. New house (ALL mine) new fella and very happy!

    I hope things get better. I love my surveys too.

    re survey sites i use quite a few as i have mentioned in my old diary at work its dead from say 2am till 5am and on my days off i spend an hour or two on them.

    I have used nearly every survey site at somepoint

    Personally the sites you have mentioned i dont bother with much isay i get a voucher time too time.

    The main ones i use are

    Yougov.org

    one poll.com

    opinion outpost.co.uk

    ukhiving.com

    uk toluna

    power of opinions.co.uk

    global test market.com

    opinium research.com

    and minglerespondi.co.uk


    anything else i wouldnt bother with they either have a too higher boot out rate or are scams.

    This month alone i am upto around 100 quid in rewards
