When are you moving?

This is a good step, scary but good, for you and your daughter to build your lives together. Get as much support around you as you can, including your mum, and lots of good luck.

Just look at it all with lots of positive thoughts. Its a positive move not a negative one. It will give you that important skill in life.... Independence. Not meaning to sound patronizing....but, In the end you may be glad you did it . You will get used to it and with your mothers' help you should be fine. Your friends can come round and maybe not feel they are invading your mother house too etc. When your dd is a teenager it will be better too....
How far from your mum is your new place ??

I am moving house on Friday with my DD 18 yrs and my DS 8 years. I too am a single parent and on Housing Benefit. It can be a bit depressing at times but its good to get your own place. Afterall, know it sounds hard, but when our mothers arent there anymore its good to gain that independence.
