Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

    I looked you in the eyes,
    As you came at me with a knife,
    I couldn’t move,
    I couldn’t hide,
    And with each stride,
    I really thought I was going to die.

    You walked across that living room,
    My back against a wall,
    You came up so close,
    And you looked oh so very tall.

    I pleaded in my head,
    I begged you through my eyes,
    For the only sound I made,
    Was my heart beating like a train.

    I knew my mum was in there,
    Somewhere in the dark,
    I only hoped she would open her eyes,
    Before mine close for a final time.

      I actually felt scared reading that one, like I was the child in the poem. These are amazing
      No matter how hard it will get
      We will pull always through
      ​Because I'll never forget
      ​It's the human thing to do
