You may have noticed that for the last week or so, this blog has been sprinkled with random posts and then they eventually disappeared. The internet in our flat has stopped working and our provider told my husband that it will most likely take them over a week to resolve the issue. This doesn't surprise me since our leasing office promised us a replacement dishwasher over a month and a half ago and to this date I'm still hand-washing everything (I'd like to think it's helping tone my nonexistent arm muscles), and the UKBA promised us our new visas weeks ago and we're now canceling multiple trips.
Everything takes time in the UK and I guess I'll have to wait for our internet, On Demand and landline to be fixed by BT, while I badger the leasing office about our dishwasher, doorbell, and lights to be replaced. Maybe while I'm doing all of the above, the UKBA will finally review our flipping paperwork and mail us the letter we've been patiently waiting for. The letter that states our papers have been accepted and explains how to schedule a biometrics appointment. Of course after our biometrics test, we have to wait an additional four weeks for our passports and visas to be mailed to us. Seriously. If we have to cancel our trip to Morocco next month, I will scream.
