Benefit Porn

Im still here folks a little lackluster and jaded im afraid, but still here . Easter holidays being over I can look back at the dreadful weather , the fact that me and the munchkin managed to get the first broad beans put in on the one good weather day and feeding the five thousand over the weekend .
Not a single crafty pursuit im afraid , painful thumbs disorder , ive even struggled to peel the endless mounds of potatoes required on the bleedin hell we're skint diet plan..lol
Young Baldrick , still no progress , though he does seem to be settling in at his new place quite well , despite the character assassination of some of the other residents by one interfering relative ..lol..
Its an assisted living programme , they all have problems of one sort or another , Young Baldrick may be Special Needs but hes lived rough in Birmingham hes as much a skank as the others there .
This is the problem we are having with his mother and other relatives , hes 20 , yes he does have Special Needs , but hes not going to turn back into a beige specky four eyed kid just because they think he should . Hes had that bit of freedom and hes morphed into an embarrassing skanky mess , complete with manky piercings and they just cant handle it . He looks like the drugged up member of an eighties hair band , its hilarious when he traps his dangling hip scarves in electric doors . Im sorry folks but his mental health problems are far more important than his appearance .
We managed the trip to the GPS that took 5 weeks for an appointment , it took all of 5 minutes , to get a request for a keyworker, and his mandatory two requests for referral , psychology and opthomology , he cant go to another clinic because of the two that have now been put in , he still has a badly healed broken wrist , but that will have to wait . Got to love our GPS they couldnt get him out of the door fast enough , the fact that hes mentally all over the place doesnt mean anything hes still in for a long wait for the psychology report we need to progress his long term care plan .
Still no bank account we have to chase that up today , as that is stalling him receiving benefits , though he has been accepted for housing benefit so we dont have to keep finding his rent , which is a good thing as we have to keep finding food parcels for him . He eats twice as much if hes not here, so we are more than skint at the moment , once again im expecting a summons for court to pin on the fridge door .
Normal service will be resumed eventually i'm sure , work and endless benefit scumbag chores are keeping me so busy i just have tea and nod off in the chair at the moment , i need to catch up with everything im afraid ..byeeeee

  3. Katie,
    You are doing so well on behalf of your stepson.
    What worries me is why you are working for someone who does not pay you!.
    You do not need to do that.

    1. they do pay you ...eventually. ive just been paid for some jobs from december but sadly the costs of doing the job are not always met by the fee for the job and until you do the job and they pay you this is far from obvious .
