"We'd have to decide what was most important in her basket: nappies or food?"
I was working as a carpenter when my position was made redundant along with at least 100 others. Around the same time my wife and I found out that we were pregnant. Suddenly we went from two well paying jobs down to no income. I started working for myself but when people didn’t pay on time, or at all, we had to use credit cards to keep ourselves going week to week. We started down that slippery slope of debt and it became harder and harder to get back on top.
