Last year nothing seemed to go right and it was just typical that I finished the year suffering from swine flu, Mum in hospital and a truly naff Christmas dinner experience in one of the local restaurants.
On the other hand, 2011 does appear to be looking somewhat better beginning with much better prospects of getting the place in France sold. Not 100% definite as yet but definitely looking good at the moment. If that does come to pass it’ll sort out a whole bunch of other aspects of our lives at a stroke.
Coming up soon is my first proper IT course in getting on for 10 years. That should substantially improve my chances of getting a job when the economy does get its act together. Moreover, it will get me back into the way of working in a proper job again which I imagine will likely be a bit of a jolt to the system initially.
Wendy is becoming more and more recognised as living in the UK. Coming in the next month or so is the social security tribunal that should accept her as living here for social security purposes and, all being well, prompt the payment of several thousand pounds of unpaid benefits that she’s entitled to. That seems to be the final recognition required as she’s already here for the Inland Revenue, the health department, education department and, most recently, the Open University.
Finally, there’s the upcoming court case following my action to halt a bully last June. I can’t comment further on that for legal reasons (you’re not supposed to comment on upcoming cases). At the moment it sounds like it could drag on for several months basically because it seems like at every point an adjournment is required to ask for further information from witnesses or whatever.Copyright © 2011-2013 by Arnold Stewart.
