    I used that lumpsum to put a deposit on the house and am now paying the mortgage and paying for everything else on just a single parents pension.

    Anyway, I still get the $550 I think it was last year, in July.
    I will pay off my son's OT and speech and also I have an outstanding bill with sensory tools Australia.
    If I have left over, I might indulge and get a new sewing machine, which will earn itself back when I sell more handmade items. So I see it basically as an investment with a return
    Currently I am without a sewing machine and Im going stir crazy

    Umm because they don't want to...

    If I get any this time it will be going into the emergency fund account that I just emptied to pay my lawyer. I feel so uncomfortable without a back up in place.

I didnt know my lump sum CS when EH done his tax was a overpayment of not declaring income or something and i still get the supplements i think if you get overpaid FTB then they take that out.. I way overestimated the last couple of years so i am not going to get stung again....

    I feel a bit dumb. I am assuming since I don't totally know what FTB supplements are We probably won't be getting any. From what everyone is saying thy are buying though it must be a bit of money.

    I have a bill from an overpayment last year so I've no idea if I'll even get any this year but if I do, it'll go on new bed for DS2 and bedding and hopefully bond on a new house when we move :-)

    Fingers crossed I get some back :-)
