Can i get a PP please?
Advice desperately needed! So, im in debt up to my eyeballs. Im a mother of a 1 year old, and my partner works full time. He finishes at 6 and doesnt get home until 7/7:30 every evening. His days arent fixed and his flexible working was refused. All my family either dont live near by or they work full time throughout the week, same with friends. The job I was meant to go back to I had to leave because it meant putting my child in permenent child care, but because of the hours required to work (shift patterns) the nursery wouldnt have been open. Also, once taking travel (its quite far away), tax and childcare out of my wage, i was actually losing money, so this didnt work. I currently work 2 mornings in the week teaching a mother and baby fitness class, which thankfully i can take my child too, but as its still relitivly new i’m just breaking even. I work 3-4 evenings in a pub (only about 4 hours average a night), but there are no more available hours. Im in SO much debt, I have bills bouncing all over the place, letters coming through the door. Ive never had this happen ever in my life and i really dont know what im supposed to do. I really need advice. How do I work? I dont have any desirable skills, so earning above minimum wage is unlikely, so taking a full time job and putting my daughter into childcare isnt an option. My mom is off weekends so will look after her but for the life of me I cant find a weekend job! I think ive been on all the popular job websites and nothing. We arent entitled to benefits, my partner is on 21k before tax (yes, i know thats a decent amount of money, and wouldnt be an issue if we werent in debt, but its the debt thats the issue and it just keeps building)
How do you moms work? What jobs should i be looking for? Any advice when it comes to debt? I think im just hoping theres an easy answer, and i dont think there is. Help 😢 sorry for the long post
