    Hi. Well you don’t have the money so it’s best if you just tell the landlord. I’m sure the landlord would be pleased to accept some money rather than nothing at all.. Are you worried that the landlord will evict you for being £60 short?

    I would not worry about this as you need to think about providing food & stability during these dark times. Good luck

    Don’t panic, Kellie.
    Ring and talk to your Landlord, first.
    Do that tomorrow morning.  It really is the first and most important thing you should do.
    Be honest.  Tell him what you’ve told us.  That conversation is going to be important to you, because however it goes, you will know where you stand financially in regards to your biggest monthly outlay which understandably is the one thing you’re most worried about.
    There’s help coming from the Government, for pretty much all of us.  It’s just going to take time, as it always does.
    Meantime I’ll say again – don’t panic.
    No-one in this country is going to be chucked out of their home while this situation lasts. That you can be assured of.

    God bless,

    You’re a well good person, that’s a fact, and that means more than any money can ever tell.

    God bless you, Kellie.
