So this Covid 19 thing is affecting us in more ways than thought possible,
with the cancellation of events and work in the office grinding to a halt, the boss will be implementing pay cuts and less days in the office.
I already work a 3 day week and am on a very small wage compared to 4 years ago...i am stressed beyond words
I have options though
I could rent out a room in my flat as I have 2 spare bedrooms, and I did put up some ads on the free sites. I also got a nice young man come see the flat and when he was looking at the space i could feel myself start to panic.
Today the panic is really setting in
I dont know if I can share my space with a stranger. My home is my haven from the big bad world, I only have shared my home with the people I love. I did let one of the sons friends have a room for about 5 months and I was fine with that as my son was around and i knew there was an end date to him being there. The thought of having someone around scares me, not because I am afraid, it feels like an invasion of my privacy and personal space. I am not good with strangers, I tend to hide when confronted with someone I am unsure about, that would mean the one place I feel secure (my home) would not be secure anymore.
The other option is to cut things down to a bare minimum, cut cable TV, I still have netflix (which the son is paying for) and amazon Prime and I have 5 books I havent read..
stop unnecessary shopping for clothes. shop at the wet market for food. there are ways to cut costs.
third option - rent out my flat and go live with son in Canada...
so I have options, I just have to make a decision
