Since the world changed things have become financially very tight. Two wages became one. That one wage was a full time steady one but it quickly became a part time zero hours contract. We have two financial positions. Close to the edge or veering towards the edge. The hope is that we can keep going until son has left school, is independent and I can return to a proper income. But the bottom line is our son will always come first the bankers come second.
We don’t have many indulgences. Just can’t afford them.
Our son has had it so tough. Aspergers, Dyslexia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, losing his mum, losing all his grandparents. The only thing that drives me is that I want to do everything possible to give him the best childhood.
So yes we do have some indulgences.
We pay for an annual pass to a Zoo. If you time it right you can get it heavily discounted.
We pay for a couple of rock concerts a year. We always sit at the back and pay for the cheapest seats available.
Twice a year he goes to see the WWE wrestling when they come to the UK. Again we opt for the tickets right at the back. It’s not great as the wrestlers appear that small it might as well be Lego Figure fighting. But not this time. We went to see it at the weekend. This time when I booked it I came across a couple of seats closer to the ring which had been heavily discounted due to a restricted view.
Really that’s some restricted view. Great night for our son and at last close enough to actually see the wrestlers faces…
So job done today got a happy boy.
One extra bonus. On the way back to the car we watched a massive city fireworks display. Far too much for my knackered phone.
