Re: Residential assessment?

Whilst I'm wary of making excuses, we too needed full bursary.. Does seem to be a pattern emerging, doesn't there? As Howard said, there was no pattern.

Re: Residential assessment?

Thank you Howard.

And you're right, when one door closes, another opens.

Re: Residential assessment?

Some baloney about King Edwards School. Sloppy seconds? No thanks... Whilst I'm wary of making excus...

Re: Residential assessment?

Thank you fra828. Still nothing. The lovely woman from the sorting office promised me that she would deliver my post on the way home if there wasn't time to do the round, but that was an hour ago, so I suspect there was nothing for her to deliver. :( Such a waste of a day. @ marhop18 I am so very so...

Re: Residential assessment?

Oh, this is really not a good day for the Post Office to be so short staffed that they've given my round to a new person to do once she's finished her other new out in the sticks round.... :(

Re: Residential assessment?

Well, she's there! Tis all in the lap of the Gods now... And I get 24 hrs of peace and quiet. Result! :D I do wish that I didn't have the nagging worry that even if she does get through, I might not be able to afford the fees they will ask for. Having to say, off you go, do your best, but bear in mi...
