Well some blogs are writing about folding clothes in special ways to give more space in there cupboards , some blogs are writing about there book collections but , I physically and literally cant be bothered with streamlining my life to this extent , I cannot and physically dont have the energy to live to extremes like this, Even though i love the blogs that are writing about issues like this , Just coping with day to day activities at the moment is a physical pain (another neurological appointment looms) , The top of my left foot is numb , The whole of the left side of my face twitches for days then has a rest and starts again , that's without the pain in all my limbs , But i still try and make a living with my ebay sales , Not making much but enough to live on with the small amount of tax credits to top it up so we can pay our bills , Then , a month ago i had a letter from tax credits to say they were going to do a check on me , I was a bit upset to say the least , I work for my money , I do a bit , sit a bit , do a bit , that's how my day goes , Do they want me to be entirely dependant on handouts , I buy from boot sales and jumble sales on sell on , Can you imagine asking in the rush of a jumble for a receipt or the car booter that you get a good price for giving you a receipt when they know you want to sell it on , This is the issue i had nor receipts ,So what did i do , Well i thought Nobody is saying i am dishonest in any way , so i took photographs of all my stock , sent all my business bank statements, I posted all my Hermes postal receipts . In the end i got a letter back saying that my claim was OK , but so much stress , I blame the Tv Programs about benefit claimants not wanting to work , Why should they Tar everyone with the same brush , Please forgive the rant ,I needed to get it off my chest.
