So right now I'm at the part in the visa process where there is actually nothing to do but sit and wait. Almost literally in my case, I am sitting waiting for two pieces of paper. I've probably detailed both of them before, but let's have a re-cap anyway.
1) My police records check, which I know is in progress, and that will probably take another fortnight or so to come back with the information that I have no police record.
2) An affidavit of support from Doc C, which just means providing proof that he is earning enough to take care of us both financially. Obviously I am fully intending to get a job, but the point is if for some reason I can't work the immigration service needs to be certain that I won't be a drain on resources. Doc C has been waiting for some papers from the tax department or something, so now he has those he'll be able to get the affidavit done.
Once I have both of these important bits of paper I can then apply for my interview, but until I've got them, well, I can't. So I'm sitting around waiting.
Whilst waiting I've been reading a lot (currently half-way through Terry Pratchett's "Monstrous Regiment", which is not bad.), watching classic films on DVD (I watched "Harvey" yesterday, and I got "It Had To Be You" this morning). Today I also started helping Mum & Stu out by putting components in little plastic bags, they are fitting kits with screws, rawl plugs, valves and other things in them.
Which means I have a choice about what to blog about at the moment, I could either post about putting together fitting kits or I could post reviews of books and films.
Hmmm, let me think about that for a bit...
