Sometimes scented candles or nitelites can help too, even when they're not lit.

Hi everyone, sorry not been around I've had a very poorly boy but he is much better now and I'm really looking forward to going back to work these days off have driven me crazy!

 

The smell is mostly gone now we just needed lots of candles and I got a fan air freshener.

The electric heaters are rubbish so I'm hoping to by one or a couple of those halogen ones later.

 

Apart from that is is well, it's just a real pain being so far from everything that was once 5-10 mins distance.

Hello Shreddies - sorry to hear your Son has been poorly and hope he is feeling better now.

 

Yes, if you are used to going into work every day, you do tend to miss it !

 

Pleased to hear that the smell is mostly gone now and hope you have started to settle down a bit, not nice that you are away from friends and family - perhaps they can share the visiting.

 

Please do keep us up to date on how things are going :)

Hi everyone, still here. Still not enjoying it..but it could be worse.

Well I've worked out the bad smell is coming from downstairs :/ the people that live there are deffently not approachable so I won't be speaking to them about it anytime soon!

Although we've been here a week I'm still cleaning and still finding things like hair gross.

Had to take my son to the doctors he has come out all over in a bumpy rash, when I explained that we are in temp accommodation he mentioned it could be stress related :( I really felt like breaking down there and then :'(

I really am struggling to get through this, sorry just felt like I needed to vent this out.

Hi shreddies,

 

So sorry your little boy has been unwell and now has what is a nervous rash, but I know you will have been brilliant and played down the awfulness of it all. You are obviously a wonderful mum. :-)

 

As you say, other people's hair - totally gross. And I'm sorry the people downstairs are so awful. I'm not surprised you are struggling. Most of us would be climbing the walls or would have completely given up - but you haven't and that is amazing.

 

Vent any time.

 

I'm sorry I didn't reply on Monday. I read your post and meant to. My daughter was ill over the weekend, and I was so completely exhausted and achy on Monday I was in bed by 10.00 p.m - and I am never usually in before before midnight!!

 

I know you are carrying this on your shoulders. It won't be forever.

Hello Shreddies.

 

I think you're coping really well and I'm sorry it isn't easy for you both. I know you'll hang on in there and we're here to listen whenever you need a chat. Or a whinge. :)

 

Hugs from me too, HB x

Thanks for the lovely replies, I was feeling so low yesterday today's better. I think I need to go see my doctors moods are so terrible, I could be fine one minute and panicking like crazy the next or feel really low and down, just like I was last night. I'm not sure what they will say, after all I'm quite fortunate to be where I am.

I got a call today from lady in homeless department she asked how we had settled in and I told her fine, when she asked if there were any problems, I told her I'm not really coping as well as I thought I would and my son has come over in a nervous rash, and she said sorry I just mean any problems with the property and I was just like 'oh' then dhe said she'd ring next week.

Oh we'll thanks again guys xxx

Hi shreddies, how is the little lad now ?

 

This all a bit of a shock to the system - you have been uprooted and planted somewhere alien. It will take a little time, but I am sure in a while things will settle down and you will adjust.

 

If you want to vent, just come on CAG and let loose :)

Hi shreddies,

 

What you are feeling is totally normal in the awful, uncertain situation you are in right now.

 

It's not a bad thing at all that you mentioned how low you are feeling and that your son was ill and badly affected to the lady from the homeless department. Everyone shares information.

 

You are coping much better than you believe you are coping. I think you have been, and are being, amazing.

 

Give it another 10 days or so and then phone the councillor again. That is what he is there for - to represent you.

 

And every day say out loud: This is not forever. :-)

Hi everyone,

I spoke to my mum today and hopefully I should be going to stay with them in Germany during the Easter holidays!

All I have to do is pay for the train, I'm really hoping I can buy am not getting to excited about it just encase we are asked to move or something.

My son is much better his rash is slowly going down, he's fed up of all the creams but is slowly getting used to it, I brought him that magazine with the creatures in lucite like scorpions and what not! He's add invent he's going to collect them all so that's given him something to look forward to each week.

Thanks everyone!

Hi shreddies,

 

That is great news. I'm sure a change of scenery will cheer you all up.

 

I'm glad your son is a little better and I hope he enjoys collecting all the scorpions. We have moshi monsters and puffles!

 

Hopefully your phone will still work in Germany just in case the Housing Office call about a new flat? How long will you go for?

 

Love,

 

DDxx

Hi, I'm hoping to arrange the trip tomorrow and I will let housing officer know then I'm going to book it! I've only got to pay for the trains and they are not all that expensive, it's the Eurostar that's the money sucker, I'm trying not to get to excited cos I keep thinking the housing opitions will say no you have to stay.

 

Yes we have moshi monsters too!

I don't see why you should have to stay. You have a young child and he would like to see his Grandmother at Easter. Lots of people go away over holidays and I don't see why your son shouldn't be doing the same. They should be understanding.

 

What a clever idea Moshi Monsters is. Wish I'd thought of it. And made the fortune .....

Hi just a quick one, havnt book germany the people at the council are messing me about asking me for proof we work as they said they havnt got any proof we do! Even though we have a receipt for giving that info in, so I have been sorting that out, I told them I wanted to visit patents in Germany and they want proof she lives there! Do they think I'm lying and have booked a cruise instead?!

So I'm a bit fed up tickets are going up by the day and soon I won't be able to afford it.

That is so frustrating for you. Presumably you can get duplicates of the work info you have given them?

 

Can your mum fax something from Germany that you can show to them?

 

I should take everything in to the housing office tomorrow morning and show someone and insist they give you a receipt saying they have inspected it.

 

Hopefully you'll be able to get the tickets tomorrow.

 

Love,

 

DD xx

Hi everyone,

 

Well I've been messed about with the council this past couple of days.

I got a call from my housing opitions officer telling me I have not updated my address now I am in emergency housing, I told her when we were speaking with the homeless department on the 13th I had asked if I would have to update/sign anything and he said no we will do it for you, she blatantly told me she didn't believe me and I said to her why are you telling me this now anyway we have spoken 3-4 times before! She said it has only just come to her attention now.

I said to her I'm not the kind of person to wait around for things like this to he done for me if I have to do them I will and if I was given the correct information then it would have been done ages ago.

I'm so fed up, I'm not a liar I feel like I'm wasting time.

Anyway I'm booked up to visit my patents from the 6th till the 9th because its the cheapest I would have gone from tomorrow untill the 9th/10th but the council have been a bunch of butts to me :/

Hi shreddies,

 

She sounds like a right misery. It's clear from your postings here that you really do crack on with everything you need to do, but she is not going to admit they are in the wrong.

 

I'm sorry you can't go tomorrow but I'm glad you will be able to get away for a few days at least.

 

I'm sure things will get sorted out soon.

 

Big hug,
