Am posting from work, which is really quite naughty. I've had quite a lack of doing things and seeing people lately, mostly due to the UK's visa service, who are the least efficient and unhelpful shower I've had to deal with in a while. Short story is, they have mine and Greg's passports, we can't leave the country (thus I missed a trip home), and Greg can't work (even though he's been offerred a job). Hopefully, it will be sorted by the end of the week, in that he will have a letter from the visa service stating he's eligible for work. They won't send our passports back for some imaginary and unkown period of time however, because the letter doesn't mean they've processed his visa, just that his application has all the stuff needed for them to process it. No, I don't know. If we do have an emergency and need our passports for anything, we have to start the whole thing over from the beginning.

I have no idea how people who don't speak English as a first language deal with this level of bureaucracy. It is infuriating and interminable.

In other news, a friend was visiting at the weekend and took me out for drinks as a treat, because what with Greg's lack of workability, we have been very, very poor and very, very very grumpy. So that was nice at least.

Also, work is going really well. I feel like I'm properly settling in now, although I can't believe that it's been almost a year suince I flew over all cloak and dagger like for the interview...
