I'm scared. I'm scared of never having any money. I'm scared of the recession, there being no jobs, of not being able to make the bills and mortgages.
There's so much we don't do already. Nights out, holidays, home improvements, nice clothes. What's going to be next? Kids' shoes?
I'm scared of having to do crappy jobs to get by, but not being able to do even that because of childcare. I'm scared of my own unresourcefulness and laziness and inefficiency.
I'm scared of getting older and having no pension.
And finally, I'm scared that Ikea's going to finally arrive and I won't be able to afford to buy anything there.
