enough money to do what you want

and being alone and scared

when things happen

and things go wrong, which they

always do when you've got kids.

You've got no one there

to turn to, you know,

to talk about things

like that.

And you had to work.

Yeah, but I was always

only part-time,

so that I could fit it

around school.

So who was

the biggest help to you

during this whole


There's no doubt at all,

without my mum and dad,

I would never have survived it.

They were brilliant.

They were really good.

Well, he went

to Australia for a year.

And he never settled back in,

being independent.

I think it was too much.

Plus his room here

was far too small.

And his computer was bigger

than the room, you know.

So, um...

Yes, he's renting.

It's just so hard for him to

be able to afford something,

so in the future, your kids

are going to be with you

for a long, long time.

But a lot of my work is involved

in making bookings

and dealing with
