I can see it in my future and it scares the hell out of me
I'm worried about being bored, I'm worried about money...This is the end of my first week on furlough and I’m bored already!
If I was to be furloughed, I would get less than 80% of my salary. It's a big pay cut. I'm pretty much stuck at home as my driving licence has expired and I can't apply onlineMy husband's on it from Monday and we're trying to see the positives. The alternative could well have been redundancy so 80% pay is pretty decent in comparison. We're saving money from not eating out, commuting to work, paying nursery fees etc anyway. He's taking the opportunity to sign up for the NHS volunteer programme and complete a work-related course he's been thinking about doing for a while.
I appreciate that everyone's circumstances and financial situation are different, and I'm not gonna lie, it does worry me what all this means in the long term, but trying to look on the positives. Absolutely nothing we can do to change the situation so need to try and make the best of it x
