well i went to the housing benefit people and surprise surprise i got a nice lady but they still saying it my fault i in debt as i did not tell them my change of circumstances on time well listen to this my daugjter started her apprenticesjhip on jan 3rd at 9 am on the same day at 9.15 am i was in the office with all her work details where she was working/ how long for/ hours/pay etc they gave me a reciept which clearly says change of circumstance information DURRRRRRR!!!!!!!! how quicer could i havre done it i knew i would have tpo pay somethingnow her income is coming in the house i not stupid!!!anyway the lady said i could complain by form so i did there and then she said i have to pay 23 a week housing benefit and that goes up to 28 a week on 1st april (great) and 16 a month council tax and ineed toset up a direct debit with my housing association fro thisasap as i am also 70 in arrears with them again through no fault of my own !!!!anyway i get all tearful in there manage to drive home my dad came to put some new lights up in thhall and called me i was sobbing like a baby in kitchen he thought whatever is wrong and i told him he called my housing assosiation and they told him i was 314 in arrears so that set me odff again my dad was livid that they had let it get to this with no letter i had no idea about
so the outcome is my wonderful mum and da paifd my arreaers off in full and not only that they have just set up a direct debit to put 25 a month into my account so that covers the council tax and a part of the housing benefit as my daughter obviously pays me to live here now

I am so lucky i cant thank them enough i have spent nearly all morning in tears my poor dad didnt know what to do with me he told me it would all be ok and i said to him its not jus that its all this fibromyalgiadad i jus cant stand it anymore
my mum just called me to see if i wanted any shopping tomorrow bless her and that set me off again
