My good friend Anja visited today, which was brilliant; especially as a letter arrived confirming that my carers allowance is extended for 2 years until 2013.
That is good news, it’s a relief to know that we do not need to worry about money, I am relieved.
For the last two days I have been trying to keep calm, which hasn’t been easy, but I have managed not to dwell on it.
Anja has taken a letter away with her, from the council department turning down my application for air conditioning.
She will write a letter appealing the decision and will e-mail me the letter tonight which I will then print out and Richie will post, the deadline is next Tuesday.
I have no expectations, expect that I hope that my appeal will be getting a fair hearing and hopefully they will scrutinise the reasons for the rejection of my application.
Our apartment doesn’t get much sun, the kitchen faces north and the other side of the front room faces east, so sadly no sun after 11 in the morning.
If I had known that before we took it I would have been tempted to wait for another apartment, one with sunshine.
After being stuck indoors for nearly one year, this apartment with lift was too good to miss, a pity about the lack of sunshine, being a Trini I need sun.
