    My area becoming very unsafe to live in & not being able to afford to move (its a poor area but ok at the moment, I'm concerned all the cuts to people's benefits, support, employment etc cld cause the area to deteoriate. The cuts are going to hit ppl in my area very hard.).
    Only after the last tree has been cut down,
    Only after the last river has been poisoned,
    Only after the last fish has been caught,
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten

  • My biggest financial fear is what we're going to do when OH has served his 22yrs in the forces (not very far away now). I'm not sure we can afford for him to leave, but equally he has a dream job in mind and wants to feel settled once we have children.
