I can't be the only one who can see financial doom heading Emma's way,
as she ends up paying for other things out of her new wages and can
only just manage to pay the minimum on the card each month, thus
racking up huge amounts of interest at 20-some %. By Christmas, they
will be due to be evicted for not being able to pay Oliver.
I don't think Emma is _necessarily_ that irresponsible: not (as far as
we know) particularly well educated, but still ...
*She* doesn't need to be irresponsible. As the entire family are
clearly living hand to mouth, despite the income they must have, all
it needs is for one minor mishap - Ed's equipment needs fixing (I
mean, 18 grand to fix the Brookfield tractor and rent another one for
a week!!!) or someone doesn't pay Eddie for a large landscaping job
(he is still doing that?) or Clarrie falls off her bike and can't work
or do B&B and they're all up a gum tree without a fiver to buy a
paddle and Emma will end up bailing everyone out. She'll end up
working at the chicken factory every night, working at the tea rooms
all day and cleaning Peggy's place instead of eating.
