I am so jealous of the fact that you and your son have that SPECIAL bond. You do not find that these days with families so spread out and of course every child and parent is different. I hope to one day have that with my only child, a girl. Right now, we begin to get on each other's nerves after 24 hours of being around each other
Thanks for stopping in and sharing!
I am 53 this year and from the UK. I have been a full time, single mother for most of my life, had my own businesses and at times lived on state benefits and now live with my eldest son.
I have no income. I could claim state benefits, but the pressure of being made to take just any kind of work to satisfy their statistics, is not something I am prepared to put up with for less than ï¿½60/$97 a week.
I have applied for hundreds of jobs and sent out hundreds of CVs, all for positions I am more than capable of filling. I would say that of all the applications I sent out I had 10 replies at the most. Online or by post, no one seems to respond to negative applications anymore.
I am lucky my son is happy for me to live with him. I would enjoy working but I am not prepared to make someone else rich by my hard work. If I do work again it will be for myself. I just need to come up with a viable business idea.
