homecoming

I've returned refreshed-but to a house that needs cleaning. Mainly because Mike the Builder has put three new wood double glazed windows in!!

I've been offered more horse manure for the allotment!

The other heap of **** that needs sorting is the government department that is supposed to be paying me the princely sum of £64.30 a week. To quote the government blurb, this is how much you need to live on.....
You sign on the line to say that you are unemployed every fortnight...so I have been since early December. Their computer caught up with the fact that I wasn't sick enough to be "sick" mid January....so no money since then. Apparently I have been dealt with "manually" instead of on the computer system. So no records. Now apparently even THAT doesn't exist.

All this, and you cannot deal with anyone face to face, it is all online or by phone..."yes, I'll e-mail this off straight away, mark it Urgent"- said ten working days ago.

Now will they phone me back this morning as promised?

They phoned. They apologized profusely.
But I still have to start the paperwork from square one as they have mislaid it....
