    My 15 yr old daughter just brought home her first pay packet - the sum total of £10.50! She has chosen to go out tonight with her friends, so I said I would give her a tenner, before I knew about the job, but now she says she wants £20(!!) so I said it had to come out of her wages! So she has earned 50p today!

    It's a hard life when you start... funny how it doesn't really change as times goes on!

    Hope things get better soon for you.

    I'm glad we are being more sensible this time around - no sky, pay as you go internet, cheap food shopping!

    Atleast we've got a roof over our heads and food in our bellies, thats all that really matters!!

    To be honest I'd rather be poor and have my own place than still live at home!! Even if me nad OH broke up i'd still rent on my own rather than move back, I'd be even poorer then, but i love having my own place!!

    I hate that on pay day. I'm left with about £100 a month to myself which is also for food but then I only work p/t but I don't want to work more hours as I'd rather have a dog and a life!
