Today is Boxing day. My child is spending a few days with her dad. I was given immediate notice 3 days before Christmas to stop my job, I am self employed but regulated. Now the hunt for work begins amidst a court challenge for this decision.
As I face a new year with rising bills, debts and still paying a WTC overpayment its becoming stressful now. How will I manage? I had to top my electric up again it's costing £50 a month now, how do I keep motivated? I know I'm not the only 1 in this position. Is this my chance now to get a degree or change the direction of my work. Even making the change on UC journal isn't easy because of my self employment status.
