Unfortunately, I have already paid out for two paper remarks. One was for my daughter's English Language paper as she felt although she passed, she would have quite liked the next grade up. Her mark didn't change though. Then I got one of Spanish papers remarked. Her mark went up by 3 points but she needed 4 to get the next grade up. If the grades had changed, then the fees would have been refunded but alas not this time. I do get what you are saying about not bothering but it was something she really wanted and I was happy to try for her. I almost covered it last month and will just make the rest up this month.

Just wanted to say well done. Its been a month or two since I last looked on your dairy and I am purposely posting this before I read the pages I missed. The money you have paid off is unreal. You are truly showing that even though things can get people in a pickle there is a way out. Its a wow/I'm so envious response. Ha ha. . I will now read the missing pages I haven't seen. I hope all has been as well as can be although I see the ex is beings pain.. boo

I'm sorry you're feeling a bit blue about being lonely, and your ex being a disaster area. You are doing so amazingly. I cannot get my head round double the number of people to manage (I have three DC) and am filled with admiration that you manage it at all, never mind with all the extra baggage.
I know what you mean about being out of sight, out of mind, with your friends. Maybe mention to your one close friend that you'd love to go out more and see if something grows from it. And if not, perhaps you can find a way to meet more people and expand the social pool a bit (easier said than done, I know. Maybe a group or something)

It is that time of year, it is starting to get darker, earlier, and when you are at home with kids, it is the time to start feeling everyone else is 'out there' and you are 'stuck' at home.
Get out in the woods and run about a bit. While they are at home nursing their heads, yours will be clear. It was thoughtless of them not to invite you though.
They might have thought that with the X not seeing the kids you would not be able to get a sitter at short notice (that is me being kind!).
Keep away from F4kebook. It is evil.

If I ever have children, I hope that this is how I would choose to parent them. I think it shows your daughter that you trust her, support her and that you have her back.

Congratulations on paying off all your historic debt! Im desperate to know how the Lloyds PPI went or are you still waiting on the ombudsman?
I'm sorry about your ex. I love that in trying to save £190 a month he's cost himself an extra £80! Stupid selfish man. The good news is that the kids have you. They have a constant to rely on keep your head up. Xxxx

I don't think it's strange to feel lonely when you have 6 kids. I think it's normal. I also think it's normal to feel like all you do is ferry them about. I'm actually rather impressed you find time to go for your personal trainer sessions. Why don't you organise a night out? I always think it's better to not get upset at not being invited but to turn it around and be sure to invite everyone. Show them that you are going out and want to be included. I'm not saying you're wrong to be upset - you're really not but don't let it suck up all that great energy you have.
You are at a tough point - you've got gcses and kids who don't get 30 hours yet. All the tricky bits but from both ends. You know it'll get easier soon.
So with the extra money from ex is that another £60 towards the extra money to find? Xxxx

You're doing so well and I agree with Kitten that perhaps take the lead in organising a night out.
Your ex will be the loser in years to come if he carries on like he has been doing with the children. The kids will remember things he does and phase him out of their lives - I know because this is what my DD did.
