What the budget means for me

Posted on: June 26, 2010

In this post, I spoke about making an announcement about something important. I can now reveal what it is. I had found a way to move back into my flat! To simplify it, I was going to move back in and get assisstance with my mortgage, and could afford to pay the bills.

I had also figured out that even if I started work, I could manage to pay my bills but needed to make sure one of my benefits was renewed. I was waiting to see if it was renewed before I gave my tenant notice.I was going to be using my mortgage holidays, so needed to wait until the end of the month.

I got a letter from work. From the sound of it, they want to get me doing light duties quickly. I decided to hang on until I was back in work so I wouldn’t have to use my mortgage holidays. I want to keep that for the last ditch option.

Then the budget happened.

From October this year, they are going to slash the amount of help they’ll give you by half.  There is no way I can move back in now. Pissed doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling. I’m sure they’ll be a silver lining, but I sure as hell can’t see one now.
