Jumble Season

Has there been any huge changes , its been a good the bad and the ugly kind of week .  On the good front Sleaford Cats Protection have received a legacy to neuter Cats , so thats one less worry , little penny is awaiting her appointment . Nobody has been able to do it before because we arent receiving the correct "benefits " the fact that we are receiving no benefits excludes us from a raft of useful things that are available . Sleaford Cat protections current Neutering offer is for anyones cat  you dont have to be poor ..

On the bad front , its another strange DWP one , we received a letter asking Mr BH to renew his sick note , rang the doctors who didnt want to see him , they would ring him when it was done .
Goes to pick the note up only to find hes fit for work again , the format has changed yet again , previously there was a third option work with support  , this is what Mr BH was in . Asked the receptionist , who said youre kidding me !  Dragged the little boy GP out of his cupboard and asked him to explain .
 Ahhh yes we had a meeting about this . Apparently we can no longer say youre unfit for work unless your on special measures .

Right so this says hes fit for normal work

No theres a box at the bottom for light duties only. The DWP now decides if youre fit for work . Ridiculous isnt it ?

So there we have it the DWP now decides if hes fit for work , cant wait . But ive a sneaky feeling they will just rubber stamp it and send him back to the horrified Job Center yet again . If it means he can get his funding for college back that would be a bonus , but then again we cant afford the fuel for him to go at the moment ...caseworkers going to love this one !!

On the ugly front , i got paid a little from some work done in May , have we splurged wildly ? No weve bought nothing but food, this should carry us through till xmas , ive now lost the will to cook because we have choice in the cupboards , I kept a whole £10 for myself and have done the charity shops and a jumble sale .


a whole 20ps worth of knitting patters for my collection  , a stack of winter reading , hedge loppers , a few sewing machine bits .  couple of tops and a large ugly item that will be revealed once ive cleaned it ...lol
I managed to resist the huge vintage dolls house that i couldnt lift for a £1 , i know how much it would cost to restore and ive a little one thats sat here glaring at me for the last 2 years!! All this and change of £3

  1. Here you go again, being pushed from here to there. As you kow I've been there. Tom was put on a carpentry course down in Portsmouth, he had to train there and back, it was only a matter of time before his back went again and we were back filling yet more forms in. I do so feel for you Kate. Nobody has any compassion any more.Good luck

  2. Sad thing is that nobody understands unless they've been there, can't tell you how many times (even family) told us we were playing the system.

  5. Love old patterns. It's seems all the relevant and non relevant departments are simply passing the buck. Crazy, once again I'm so sorry that this is still happening.
