I get a telephone call this afternoon informing me that my visa has come through. My tourist visa. And so my working life in the UK comes to a somewhat abrupt end from today. I was expecting it to come to an end at some point in the next few weeks, but I was expecting later rather than sooner. Oh well. Who says the civil service isn't efficient? What happens next is a little up to Dame Fortune and my ability to interview well, but in the meantime I can:
- Take my first holiday since December/January and my first holiday in several years lasting longer than a week.
- Explore the delights of Croydyn
- Catch up on all those galleries and museums that I have yet to get around to seeing...
