    There are definitely more grey areas in life than black and white ones especially where children are concerned and whether you're doing the right thing for them. I'm not surprised you're feeling low, you must be mentally exhausted at times having to deal with everything you do on your own.

    You don't come across as ungrateful - hope there's not a reason for you thinking that. x

    Absolutely! :p

    You have every right to have an outpouring of emotion, be it positive or negative. It's normal and human and we all do it.

    Come to my thread to see how it's unashamedly done! :rotfl:

    Thank you. Had my shower and going to get on the sofa

    Just wanted to make sure Teafor2. The debt has come down with money for that not out my bank balance leaving me short. Just didn't want the wrong message coming across.

    Haha PB I lurk on your diary :o

    Your debt is moving so quickly I can't keep up with it :rotfl: but I think what you're saying is you don't want people to think you've used what you class as 'food and everything else' money to pay the debt off instead of buying food and other things you need? Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    Seems to me DD's shoes and the pharmacy trips have knocked £20 off your food budget this week. Is that right? x

    Yours makes sense :o

    Honestly, I wouldn't give it a second thought. Unfortunately, this week 'the everything else' part was a pair of shoes DD desperately needed, painkillers and medicine for DD. So you've actually spent it on what it was supposed to be spent on. Yes, it would have been better if you hadn't needed to buy those things but at least you had the money there for them. Much better than having to get the dreaded CC out again that's for sure. :)

    Now put that TV on and stop fretting about things. x

    Please unlurk! (You just have!) It's like an echo chamber in there! (Sort of my own fault as I do a lot of my reading on my mobile on the way to/from work but I don't post that much as fat fingers and a small screen (and not great eyes) mean sooo many spelling mistakes! :o

    Absolutely and yes! If we don't hear that at least 2 episode of The Gilmore Girls have been consumed before morning, there will be trouble! *Taps foot*

    WF there's not many on here MORE grateful than you - definitely no need to worry about that. You've had concerns like this before and if I remember rightly they stemmed from some nasty comments you got from someone - if anything like that is happening again please report the perpetrator to the forum team ASAP!

    Agree with those saying sit and take some time for yourself and learn to do nothing occasionally - it's SO good to make sure you take time to recharge.

    Morning :) Hope you're feeling a bit better about things this morning. Did DD have a good night? And more importantly did you watch The Gilmore Girls? Positive Balance will be very annoyed if you didn't ;)

    I really hope you've not had any nasty comments, must admit I'm surprised that has happened in the past, everybody always seems so helpful on here. :o

    I'm off out now but I'll PM you later. x
