>Why do we have to work to live

>Sorry for the downer, but I was trying to drag myself out of bed this morning at 6am, thinking why oh why, we have a serious problem over the past 5 years in the UK, unfortunately especially were I live, it has become increasingly more expensive to live, house prices have almost tripled and wages have stayed the same, it has come to a point were people of my age (26 and above) have got to the point were we can’t afford houses, so we are all now living in rented accommodation unless we have wealthy parents who can spoil us, alas I am the oldest of 4 so this is not the case, in turn we are paying rentals of £900/$1800 a month for very small unattractive homes and in turn many people like myself are stuck, I get up every Monday being thankful I have a job but thinking why do I have to work a massive 50/60 hours a week, this morning I was a little more upset than usual as I have come to realise I don’t think my Hubby and I are going to be able to afford to have even 1 child for at least another 3 years, this is upsetting to me, mu hubby turns 30 in a couple of weeks and we always thought we would have probably 2 kids by now, since meeting Ash I wanted 6 kids, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Anyway sorry all for the rant, sitting here thinking to hard and feel fortunate that I have my blog to air my thoughts as don’t really have anyone to talk to apart from all of you.

Now for some pictures to lighten the mood.

First 2 ATC’s, that I am OK with, but don’t think they are wonderful, its for a swapbot swap, Silhouette’s ATC’s.

My new toy Ashley bought me from the supermarket on Saturday and a bargain at £3.00, its makes anything into a sticker, I just love it.

Thanks all for listening to me rant
