Oh my god, Sarah from Salvation Army just came round saying she had good news. I’d been waiting too expectantly on the letter from the court (to decide my 1-bed housing fate) which hadn’t arrived, so I was intrigued. She’d spoken to another person at the council who has decided that since my birthday is coming up soon and they have 1 bed places available that they’ll be able to put me in one, no problem.
She forgot to mention it has to be ground floor though so I’ve asked her to go back to mention that. As ever, this greatly limits my options.
But that’s quite stupendously coincidental timing considering that the PIP application is finally reaching its conclusion. I could be denied that but end up with my own place anyway. The council will be getting in touch with me to discuss it (supposedly).
So in principle, this is quite amazing. Yet I’m fully prepared for some drawback because one person’s “No problem” is another person’s “It’s against the rules”. I am always against the rules.
