Money, Money, Money!


After a week with 26p in the bank and the petrol gauge on red… a welcome text from Student finance!

Bringing up two children on a students income is hard work. Its not necessarily the lack of money, I can budget. But balancing the ebb and flow of income, which changes from month to month from five different tributaries, with the outgoings that pour steadily out of my account month after month can be tricky.

Needing to replace my car last month emptied the emergency funds, meaning that an admin error at the Student Finance left the bank balance dry.

So todays text means I can sleep tonight knowing I can actually pay the rent on Monday!
