Thanks loola but I think I'm going to switch course and do the makeup one haha. I did a photo shoot on Tuesday and my makeup thing has really taken off and I can't do both. I've already invested ALOT of money into the makeup so am
Going to ring college tomorrow and talk to them. Whatever course I pick I have to stick with it. And I'd rather do makeup out if the 2 now I'm getting into photography makeup. I'd like to out a pic up of what I've done but I'm not allowed :/ if anyone wants to look at my page on fb inbox me ill tell u what it's called. I'm not allowed to put it on public boards

Eurgh the lergy has hit, my 3 year old has chicken pox, my 1 year old is threatening with it-temp and a cold, my 14 year old had earache and a cold since Thursday abd I have hit lady fun time but I feel ill, I'm exhausted and full of cold. Deep joy! Diet very hit and miss but doing the best I can. I'm going to body balance on wed, my friend really likes it so roped me in its nearly £5 but if I give up Sw then I can go to that which I think will be better for me. I need to tone up more than anything

awwww Lou - your lot always have some sort of lergy! Make sure you are taking your vits so you dont catch anything from them! I have been to body balance before and I loved it - a really good combination of exercise and relaxing (im not one for yoga as i find i get bored laying down and breathing deeply all the time - too much of it for me). The one I went to mixed yoga, pilates and thai chi so it was really interesting too. You sleeping better?

So I am glad I went and i think it was just what I needed - time away from family, bf and my local area.
Feel a bit refreshed from it and in a much better place mentally. My sleeping is a bit better too - I am working lots of overtime this week so sleep and diet will no doubt suffer. But tbh I have let go of the stress of it - I will make the best choices I can and if that means I have one slice of bread too many then so be it! Its not going to make me pile the weight back on and getting stressed about it does my mental health no good at all. Guess I just needed time to myself to make myself 'man up' and get over it.
I am super poor this week but get paid on Thursday so I am going to plan my shopping list to the last detail and make sure I get in lots and lots of SW food for the freezer to stock up. BF is working this week too so that will help fill up the cupboards as I feel a bit like mother hubbard at the moment lol!! Lots of veggies to make SW soups for lunch and lots of pasta dishes that I can pre-prepare as well!
How is everyone getting on?

Joys of kids at nursery Sparty!! Lol.
Glad you enjoyed your night out. Hope your not too skint!! Well hubby went back to work Friday and is on sick again today, his backs gone again. I aren't even worrying about it anymore. We have no money, at all. We're almost a grand over drawn, British gas are well and truly ripping us off. We have debt that we can't pay so it's either freak out it just shrug my shoulders and get through each day in tact. We are gonna really have to tighten our belts. I can't afford to spend £130 on shopping every week which is what I spend when I'm eating healthy foods all the time. My foods are gonna have to be frozen and packet stuff and minimal expensive fresh food. My budget for 5 ppl for food and nappies and toiletries a d clothes etc per week is now around £60. But yes living on benefits is a blast, and now well have to pay 25% council tax too as the government don't give full benefit for that, tax credits have been cut, cost if living gone up, utility bills sky high. I would love to see these ppl who make these cuts live in our shoes then still say we live the life of Riley. We've applied for every job in the area with no response, I'm going to college to do a course to help my career but we need a car. If we drove and had a car we could get more work meaning we wouldn't need benefits etcetc but we can't afford to do that without a job, we can't get a job with out a car. Catch 22. I just keep telling myself nothing last forever. Ooh sorry went off on one then completely undiet rated lol. But with all this in mind I'm trying my hardest. Not always succeeding but I'm doing the best I can x

Do you know what Lou - I agree with you. Who on earth can afford bills at the moment and people who make decisions don't think we are all struggling!!
I really feel for you Lou especially with ur hubby so poorly! Do you live in a rural area?! Is that why there are no jobs?! (Saying that you have your hands full with kids which is a full time job in itself!!)
My overdraft is nearly all gone plus I have a credit card up to about £4.5k because of how much it costs me to get to work!! (About 3.3k per year!!! Daylight robbery considering trains are dirty, late and often cancelled!!) but like you, trying to just tighten our belts where we can and plod along.
I found a link on the money saving expert website about feeding a family of 4 for £12 per week!!! Some good ideas on there for recipes etc as well. Ill see if I can dig out a link for you in case it helps!

My girls will only eat healthy stuff which is good but why is it so damn expensive?? I did a shop at get on today and spent £60 but fridge and cupboards are really full..and the freezer is overflowing haha mostly frozen veg. I'm honestly so busy with the makeup unfortunately it's unpaid but for pictures for my portfolio which a good picture can get me a paid job so I have to keep going. But ppl saw the work I did at the last shoot and I'm getting booked up quick. 2 paid jobs in a couple of weeks which will be nice although they no where near cover my outgoings lol. I have a bridal fayre Sunday so I'm hoping that I can generate some interest that way. Oh and my printer is out if ink. Marvellous more expense lol x
How's everyone doing? I'm maintaining nicely at 10.5 starting to feel like I want to be healthier and do more exercise so reckon it won't be long before I'm back on form again
It's currently 4.30 I've been up an hour getting ready for a photo shoot so I've had to grab some breakfast but won't get to eat now until after lunch. I'm so excited though xx
