    Large single Parent Family getting Debt free 2nd Jun 16 at 9:38 AM
    Hi all,
    I'm kim Mumma to 8 beautiful babies.
    I have around 20k of debt excluding my Student loan and I want it all gone, I don't want to owe a single penny.
    I'm posting a SOA today and I need to get a car as mine has died and I need it to get the kids to 3 different childcare settings/school, busses are hourly so I either need a car or I will have to pay for wraparound care for 3 of my kids at a different setting to the others (lack of school places in my area also but all on waiting lists).
    I have a new starter to high school this year so dreading the uniform costs.
    I am supposed to get child support from the EX's but going through the process of CMS at the moment.
    thanks for looking at my diary xx

    We are with you in spirit, Kim. While it is a very good idea to be prepared for the move, you are allowed to take a day off, now and then. Your LL cannot make you leave without a court order, which takes time. You will find somewhere, with or without the council's help. Is it really not worth trying to contact someone you used to work with to see if they know anyone in the Housing dept. who might know of an LL/LA who would accept you?

    It will get better. Don't know when but it will. Sending you hugs and love thoughts:

    I am viewing 2 more houses tomorrow once I've done the school run.
    I'm trying to find somewhere before my bankruptcy is registered because once that on my credit file it makes it all much harder again.
