Good news - DLA

 

A very good evening folks, I have been keeping my head down and reading rather than commenting but thought you might like a small update and my good news.  At the back end of the year, I was supported to complete my DLA application and get it away.  Needless to say, the wheels of the department of work and pensions tend to run slowly.

In the interim, made the decision to drop from 5 days to 4 days starting at the beginning of the month, a new year and all that!  Anyway, enjoyed the past two weeks, Wednesday being my rest day.  I was aware that there would be a big drop in the income but there is more to life that money.  Anyway, with the better half had stopped smoking which helped.

Last Thursday, a letter drops throught the post confirming that I have been awarded high rate mobility and low rate care - woo hoo, you could have knocked me down with a feather.  The wife and I went hunting for cars today and take delivery of a new car within the next couple of weeks.  Wanted to share the news with you good people.
