Homeless for yet another Xmas
So my landlord has given notice. I have no money to pay for references and no guarantor. I've gone to the council and they're being great and have said they'll sort me out something temporary because it could be sometime until they find me somewhere permanent and suitable, but this will be the second Xmas on the trot being homeless. I've been ok about it until yesterday and it suddenly hit me - I feel so seriously insecure physically, financially, emotionally. I'm skint - but that comes with the territory of being unwell. I'm getting really upset every time I see nice furniture or ornaments or even crafty stuff - it's not that I can't afford it, it's that I'll soon have no where to put it. I know that it's a means to an end and I will eventually have somewhere permanent but because I have no idea where it will be, or what it could be and if I'll get any choice in the matter. This is less of a call for advice (but if you have any please share it), more a little rant - I feel so lonely and isolated because it seems like everyone else is going off to their families for Xmas where as I'm going to be stuck in some temporary accommodation waiting for something to come up for me
