    Question Sponsoring Parents

    I'm looking into sponsoring my parents in a few years time but have come a bit stuck! It's says you need to be earning a minimum amount of dosh before you can sponsor them. I am a HomeDad so don't earn anything. Will they take into account the wifelet's money instead, or is it a case that I can't sponsor them until the kids are grown up and I can return to full-time work?

    Sounds to me like you are a spongin wifelet spondoolics sapper and you should be kicked in the balls, have your head shaved and your hands tied behind your back and to your ankles in one of them strange rope knot things that you see on ode cowboy and injun films and be made to lick road clean wi tongue till yow get ysen a bob a job jobber dobber

    This may sound harsh but children can look after themselves from being several weeks old including mekkin fire and gerrin tea on, so stop mekin excuses or else how are you gonna get your folksies out ere eh????

    Bloody ell, the daft questions people ask on this forum.........

    Ooooo - ang on you already ave your ed shaved so I think it should be tattooed in ancient Egyptian heiroglyphs like something off The Mummy, that makes scarrab beatles flood out y cake hole when they are translated by some strangely educated beautiful young woman that just happens to be passing at the time with a 'How to read sncient Egyptian Heiroglyphs' book under her feeble weak looking but immensely strong and powerful arm.

    Warren, like it!!!!!

    No serious answers on this post so far then? Looks like your odes are destined to stay in the good old UK Jonny boy.

    I would love to bring my mummy too - but have been told 'fat chance' by the powers that be aka Taffy.

    She is coming for a lil visit in March though. Can't wait!!!!

    Was there a reason why Taffy said "fat chance"?

    Jons folks are kinda set upon the idea of us successfully sponsoring them when our 3 years are up ... especially now that it looks as though his sister is heading this way too. Might be a bit of a fly in the ointment if we can't do it!
