Deaf geographies, and other worlds.

The hard facts of life

The maths is inescapable… Between Jo and me, we need to earn more money.

No… it’s not about prestige, or recognition… or luxury, or ‘stuff’… it’s about the mortgage, which is due for renewal at the end of the year.

… cue a string of comparison websites, which all suggest that we can get a mortgage on my current income – but only one that will cover half of the house.

So, now we have to decide… Jo can either go back to work, or we can sell the back bedroom and the garden, most of the garage and some of the bathroom…

… or my income needs to go up.

Short of selling a kidney, I’m not really sure what to do about that!
