Oh, Sophie_M! 😺 but thank you for your concern. I think I see what 'triggered' you, my use of the phrase, 'give up' - in context, I'm not, you know....s******l.
All I meant that the paperwork, which needs to be filled in, fully & accurately, the supporting documents which need to be exactly correct, & locating appropriate legal assistance has proved to be like a long distance marathon through the Himalayas, thinking we got over one mountain, only to have to go over another, & it's mountains all the way to the horizon.
So far, this one has been the worst. That's bureaucracy, eh? I'm just hoping we're not going to find Everest in front of us, but we're taking on one hill at a time.
& thanks to you, too, Learn to Fly. 😸 I'd've liked a n 'okay' day. You know what? We don't appreciate the 'okay' days enough. Let's do that!
