I posted a last week about some financial issues I'm having with my dp, basically he works full time on a decent wage, I receive CTC, cb and maintenance for my eldest dc. I pay half of all the bills, mortgage etc plus buy all of the food and all of the children's clothes, activities etc, etc. This has, of course, caused major stress for me to the point that my mum takes me food shopping just to ensure we have food in the house for my children.

Yesterday he comes home telling me he has just found out his brother (9 years old) has rattled up a £700 bill on his x-box on his mothers credit card. That she has no money at all now. MIL is on benefits, I suggested she could contact DWP to apply for a loan for food and essentials and perhaps speak to her sons father to arrange buying food for them.

I've now found out that dp has given his mum about £300. I don't grudge his mum help for food, but what I am struggling with is that he has no issue giving his mum money but never has any to give to me for our children.

I think some of us feel that it may be better to let this thread move down the list and allow Auch to make contact when she is able rather than filling it up with bumps. If there is a possibility that her OH did find this thread then we need to let it die.
She knows we are here and she knows we care and at this stage we just have to hope she is ok and that she updates us when she can. There's no point in doing anything else.


Just wondering if Auch ever updated? I followed the thread for a while and was quite worried
