I'm alive, well (it's all relative!) and settling in to my new flat. I've managed to sort out a landline, but it will be some time (possibly weeks) before I can get broadband hooked up. Until then I don't expect to be able to post as there are no internet cafes where I live and finding places with wi-fi access is difficult. I'm sort of attempting to keep a moving diary so I'll post that when I can, but expect highlights such as my having been called a victim over a dozen times by the woman who processed my housing benefit application, how I managed to restrain myself from walloping her to give insight into what being a victim really means and more nonsense from the utility companies.

Hope life is treating you all kindly, Bendy Girl x

Glad to hear you are settling in okay. I look forward to when you can start blogging again regularly. Don't let the buggers grind you down; but then I don't suppose you do.

Now you know why the Irish like to keep a shelaighleigh handy. It's much easier on the knuckles when dealing with public servants.

Victim of *what* exactly?! Being patronised by departments perhaps. Glad the move has gone smoothly though.

Achelois says - BG now you have a landline why in this day and age does getting hooked up to the big B have to be tiresome. Well I miss you and need to know you are cosy and warm and all those other ands.... please fill in the gaps as soon as. Have you a library near at all for internet access... all I can see from the photo is Sea and in the summer I hope sunshine. Keep smiling BG.

Glad to hear you've moved, and look forward to more blogging - hope the broadband, and electricity, and everything else are sorted quickly!

Just flying by - thought I'd tip a wing and see if there was anybody nude sunbathing in the garden. I guess not yet. Must be too soon. I'll be back.

So its ok to assault dss staff is it ?

You are a bad person as well as a victim.

I miss reading your blog, Bendy! I hope your doing ok and will be back posting soon.

Oh, and to the previous, anonymous, commenter: What a silly, humourless thing to say! No-one actually hit anyone, no-one was suggesting it's "ok to assault DSS staff." I believe the post was an expression of frustration, not an advocation of violence.
