Re: f is for family: the fun, the fiascos and the feuds

How does your family impact on your life generally? (e.g. living arrangements, relationships, work, positives, negatives).

 


Well, to begin with they're who I live with.

I really do rely on them for most things. For security predominantly, but also entertainment and support. They're what keeps me living here and calling my house my home.

Re: f is for family: the fun, the fiascos and the feuds

Because we like to help others and each other on reach out....

 

 What supports have you used (or has your family used) when going through a hard time? Are there any services you can recommend to a family going through a difficult time?

Re: f is for family: the fun, the fiascos and the feuds

hmmm family fiasco???? I remember the time we all went camping for Hayleys Comet and I poked my cousin's eye with a hot stick from the fire. We all laugh about it now, believe it or not! Or my most recent fiasco, that my sister was made redundant from her job and so we bought her a flight to NYC leaving a few days later, that was fun!!
