Poverty and ‘Dating’

This week I’ve been sorting out things in my flat to sell online just so I can put food on the table and warm my home. I’ve already borrowed from family and I can’t bring myself to ask for more so I’m just balancing on the edge of survival until payday.

I keep the heating off while my son stays at his dad’s for the weekend and I warm the place back up for his arrival. There’s no need for him to know how bad things are.
