Well with Christmas tomorrow, call me selfish but I know I'm not getting what I want this year. I did ask for a new computer just after my birthday for Christmas in June but got told my family could not afford it, and then was asked what else did I want, now being an only child I normally got with in reason what I wanted for xmas but being me I simply asked for money because I knew that my family could only put what they could afford to give me.
Anyway back to the topic last night in the car I asked my mum if we were financially O.K.? but she wouldn't give me a straight answer, she kept saying things like "We will be fine next month" and then finally I got a straight answer from her and that was "No, but we can still pay the bills and our other house pays for its self" And that brings us to the main question.
How has the recession affected you this xmas/year or how has it not?
