Gas central heating update

I've had the result of the latest financial assessment towards paying for residential respite costs whilst they install gas central heating. HA! Hee Hee, Ha Ha Ha HA! Sob... Somebody has a warped sense of humour. :)

It has taken ELEVEN MONTHS to get to this point. I'm not playing this game anymore. I've emailed the Council, cancelled it. I didn't want to phone them, just in case I lost it with someone and that would not be fair on them, the people answering the phone cant do anything about it.

In all honesty, I'm both angry and relieved. The more this has gone on, the more anxious and agitated I have become. Just not worth it. I dont have the energy or the inclination. Roll on Spring! :) :) Tulip xx

Oh Tulip I am so sorry to hear that you are really having a bad time of it lately. It is as though they make you jump through all these hoops in the hope that you will get sick and tired of it all and give up, I can imagine it is just one step too many to fight on. I know the council's have had their budgets cut back so much that they are now looking at every penny they spend but I always feel they are cutting back in the wrong areas. Have you had a word with your MP about this as they can be really helpful as you are someone in genuine need. As you say roll on the Spring.x


I contacted him before, there doesn't seem much point. I know when I'm beat, and I'm beat! If it was someone else I would probably be telling them to fight! It's wrong on so many levels but I just cant do it any more. Thank you so much for your support. Spring is coming. Time to draw a line and leave it behind. Tulip xx


Yes you could be right sometimes we only just have enough energy to get us by and you are not beat you have just made a positive decision to conserve your energy and use it for other things. Spring is on the way and it will soon be your turn to blossom. I should have been out with the girls tonight but not a good day so I'm off to bed but I am trying to look at it positively in thinking I am conserving my energy for a brand new day tomorrow. Hope you have a better night.x


I understand what you mean, and if you look after yourself tonight, maybe next time....? Sleep well. :) Tulip xx


I really am so very sorry to read that you have reached the end of your tether. I understand completely where you are coming from and I hope that you okay with this.

Please take care

Thank you so much Ken. I'm ok. Things happen, or not, for a reason. I may not be able to see it now, but I trust it is the right thing for now. Who knows what is round the corner!

I wish you well, and thank you for your support. Tulip xx
