I'm finally back in the UK! I like being back. Apparently the consulate is all about exceeding expectations, because my visa was issued two days after I got that email, and I got my passport back the following day. Sadly, I wasn't allowed entry until the 29, but I'm here and happy to be! We've been having fun together, and I'm using the time he's at work to unpack and clean up the place. (Because while he clearly tried to clean for me, he also clearly has much lower standards!) I'm trying to figure out how I sign on with a doctor and which bank is the best for a new account, and it all feels very domestic. Nice.
