Clare - run whilst you can. Don't end up like me where my family sort of sacrificed me into being the step in Dad and carer and home help. 15 years down the line and I have very little confidence left. I wish I had your courage to up and go. Like you, work is my escape even though work is very drain...
Thanks both. BB - I know your son is not well, can I just ask exactly what is wrong with him? Is it similar to what my sister has? Sorry, I know you have mentioned it but I don't know exactly what his condition is. Ignore me if I am being too nosey. Also, I know you mentioned he is in some kind of s...
Thanks Penny. I've just looked up dyspraxia and that's her to a tee. I'm surprised that her GP etc have never cottoned onto this or does one have to query it? She has always been like this: 2 feet on each step, walking like she is drunk and is about to fall over, walking into walls and doors etc. Sh...
Couldn't stand Katie Price until now but have warmed to her a bit.

The tabloids make Harvey sound like a monster but he is just a teenager who isn't very well. He seemed like a lovely young man. Really charming as well.
I know for a fact there are learning difficulties but I think it might be more than that. I'm not a medical professional so perhaps it's all normal. She's always had to place both feet on each step when she is going down them. She seems to think she is superior to everyone else. So if she is going t...
Hi all, I didn't know where to post this one so I thought I would put it in this section. Please move if it's in the wrong bit. So my sister is in her late 40's now, never married and still living with Mum. I am also at home - moved out once but was seemingly dragged back when Dad got cancer and the...
BB - they don't do that here. She could rent this house out via the Council but they wouldn't let her rent a bungalow from them. Crazy I know but it is what it is. The property I went to view has been snapped up by someone else. I put in my best offer but someone offered £20K more than me which I co...
Vent on here, I do that. It helps get it off my chest.

Hopefully things will be getting better sooner for you and for everyone else what with the lockdown coming to an end.
Thanks both. I've put the offer in today. Fingers crossed. BB - our Council don't do swaps or exchanges as such. The only way to get one of their bungalows is via bidding. Mum wanted to be honest when we did the application. She told them this was her house so she gets no priority at all. :woohoo: :...
Let us know how you get on. If she gets a support worker, they will help get her utilities etc sorted too. They may also be able to source an item of white goods for free so bear that in mind too. My local authority is now giving the full works to new tenants who are moving into their first own loca...
