THE BROWN ENVELOPE!!!...=-O

Hello my lovelies! The brown envelope dropped on the mat this morning!!... With trembling hands I picked it up and saw that it was from the DWP...I had my pip assessment last week Wednesday and was told that I would hear between 4-6 weeks for a decision! Well blow me down!! It WAS!! the decision and I've been awarded enhanced rate for both!!....:-D :-D Still feeling a little nauseous but finally (I applied in Nov 2013) it's looking brighter!....:-D :-D Never ever give up my friends!!.... Much love... Ninja...xxx

Absolutely wonderful news. I'm definately in there if there is a party, have you any Pink Champagne or even Rose Wine will do at a pinch? I bet it is a weight off your mind.xxx

Hehehe! Pink champagne it is then! It really is a weight off my mind...I moved into my little flat in Aug last year and have done what I can so far, but the second phase is going to take a bit of money to complete so this couldn't have come at a better time!....:-D :-D ♥♥

Someone must have been looking down on you and saw you needed the money. It will be amazing how that extra money will soon mount up and hopefully you will be able to get your flat just how you wanted it. I remember when I got my dear departed mother in law Attendance Allowance she was full of super plans, first it was a shower, then it was a recliner, then it was a cooker that was easier to use and in the end her little flat was just how she wanted it and much easier for her to manage.x

Wonderful news Ninja :)

I also got a Brown envelope shedding good news recently regarding my DLA renewal with it being increased to include lower rate care component on top of my higher rate mobility and you're right about not giving up :)

What I don't understand is how they really believed that someone with higher rate mobilty issues didn't have care needs!?! One to ponder on :o

I can't remember how many DLA or disabilty related applications that I've applied for over the years or how many knock-backs that I've had either. It hurts when we get denied but to keep fighting and pursue what you're entitled to means you stand more chance of being successful than if we sit back and do nothing.

Fluffies and smiles for you {{{{{{ Ninja }}}}}}
