please be gentle I’ve had enough of this misery 😂

I claim careers allowance. I have recently started working part time of £137 a week. This job is in a school and term time only. 

So I am under the weekly bracket. But not their monthly bracket on a 5 week month.

I’ve recieved a letter today and now their saying I can only earn £602 a month but my wage is paid on the same date every month and on a 5 week month I am over the threshold. But the weekly is still only the weekly amount. I am in bits I’m trying to better myself, have some time away from the endless appointments ect when my son is at school yet I’m being punished for a 5 week month that’s is out of my control. 

Anyone have any idea will I be without careers because of this?
