The sudden increase in rent by £150 a month hit me hard. Being a single mum with debts isn't easy. I work as much as I can, but with my struggles with anxiety, PTSD, and alopecia, it's a battle. The cost of living crisis only adds to the struggle.
Losing my twin girls in 2018 was a heart-wrenching experience. It happened when I was six months pregnant, and it's a loss that I feel every day.
Despite the hardships, the support from everyone has been a beacon of hope. It makes a world of difference for my daughter and me, and I'm so, so grateful for it.
The idea of moving to a house with a garden is exhilarating. It's a dream to have a space where my daughter can play freely. I do feel a quite sad at the thought of leaving the flat where we've lived since my daughter was born. It's filled with memories.
But the move marks a new chapter for us. It's about striving for financial stability in our own home and living life to our best. The journey ahead is promising and full of hope.
