I am a 31 year old single parent to two beautiful children; Bea aged 11 (my daughter) and Roo aged 3 (my son).
In May we were served notice on our private rental home after living there for 3 years. It was a no faults section 21 (basic 2 months notice from our landlord) This blog is about how we’ve coped with the homelessness system within our Local Authority. It’s been a great place to share the real human cost to something that is so often reduced to numbers on lists and statistic.
We are currently in Temporary housing awaiting a successful bid on a permanent property and have been told we’ll be for at least 2 years. You can see the timeline of our journey so far here.
Since we’ve settled in our new temporary home the things I write about won’t be very ‘homeless’ related. I’m probably going to be blogging about the usual stuff that parents blog about and whilst it may not be the most interesting thing for you all to read it’s a very welcome step back into a normal life for us. I am still a fairly a new blogger and I am not a writer by any means! But I am enjoying the process hugely.
