One thing that will keep her going is that it's not forever............m
ost homeless people know they will be sleeping rough night after night. Its a vicious circle which is hard to overcome ~ no job no home, no home no job. However, some people actually choose to live rough rather than pay to live anywhere warm out of their benefits. Its a sad world we live in ................

Check the bearded beggar in Post House Wynd, Darlington. He has never missed a day begging, lives in a nice two bed in Cockerton Village, claims his benefits and his catch phrase is "Any Spare Change Mate"
