I’ve just had confirmation that our new Panel date has been confirmed for next week, the 18th, at 2.40pm.  Or was it 3.20pm.  Who knows?  And frankly, I don’t give a damn what time it is as long as we get the OK.
Our Lovely Social Worker has assured me that she won’t be leaving the Panel until we have a yes, as she’s on maternity leave shortly afterwards and is determined to see us through to approval. And she’s one determined lady so here’s hoping.
I’m pretty sure a sense of relief is imminent.  It’s been a tough three weeks during which I’ve not achieved very much except a world class talent for moping and generally feeling very sorry for my self in a rather pitiful manner.  
Perhaps now the fog in my head will clear a little and I can finally get something done.
