Q 6 has a "N/A no partner" but not a "N/A no employer" option.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-12 11:18:27

Thanks Blue I've added "if you/your partner don't have an employer please leave blank".

Am I being an idiot? Your first post says: To take part in the survey .

How does one do it then?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-12 11:49:51

sc2987 It should say "To take part in the survey click here." Try this link.

Tee2072 Mon 11-Jun-12 11:50:21

Are you on the App SC? Cuz you can't do links from there.

sc2987 Mon 11-Jun-12 11:52:41

No I'm using Firefox on a laptop, all other links on the site work fine but that one is not visible to me.

Could someone post the text of the link rather than the link itself and then I can copy and paste that?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-12 11:54:27

Here's the link sc2987

sc2987 Mon 11-Jun-12 11:58:09

Nope, still can't see it! I can see and click on the Unum one at the beginning of your initial post, but not this one.

Did you tick 'convert links automatically'? If so could you leave it unticked and it might show the link in plain text instead as it will assume it's just words.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-12 12:03:31

Sorry about that - is this better?

sc2987 Mon 11-Jun-12 12:06:02

Yes! Thank you

Tee youve made a mistake in your spreadsheet. I think you'll find its my turn....
It must be by now.

Tee2072 Mon 11-Jun-12 12:39:51

I just doubled checked,'s definitely my turn. Sorry.

Not sure how the data will be interpreted, but when it comes to questions like whether you worry about certain outgoings, it may not be wise to have "paying bills" in the same category as "continuing to have family holidays". I wasn't sure how to answer.

- I am not worried about meeting the bills, because we can do so comfortably. If we couldn't afford to, I'd certainly be worried.
- I'm also not "worried" about "continuing to have holidays", but that isn't because we can afford it! It's because we haven't been able to for ages, and won't be in the foreseeable future. But it's holidays, therefore a luxury, therefore not the same thing.

Tee2072 Mon 11-Jun-12 13:08:23

That's a really good point Owl. Am I worried about rent and food? Yes. Am I worried about going to the South of France? No.
