I Need Sun.

George Grie.

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.

Solar powered! Hope you get the air conditioner. Vermont covers those for MS under medical benefit. Good luck! Love, Mary

Hi there H@R, wonderful to read that the careers allowence has been extented,a great relive I,m sure. So wonderful that Anja is there for you, as sorting paperwork is difficult at the best of times, got me fingers and toes crossed for the air-co. Thank you so much for all the wonderfull books.

Concratulations ! Being from Germany you might guess, that it is the rain and autumn feeling I long for much, after about 80 days with nothing but sun.
Sending you two hands full of it and a nice Friday as well.

Let us hope things turn out to your advantage.Yes, sun shine makes the house warm and bright.Mine too is dark with many big trees shutting out the light.These are some things that happen despite our best care.

Hi Gareth,
We are happy you like the books, i hope you enjoy using them, cookery books helped me being creative.

Hi Robert,
Lovely to see your comment, I bet you long for cool after the boiling hot Greek summer.
Thanks for sending sun it arrived yesterday and was great.
The first hot day since 3 July, it was over 30 degrees here.

Hi KP,
Thanks I hope so too, and you are right we can't organise everything.
Shame about the sun though.

Thanks you three dear friends for coming by, i was happy to see your comments.
