The hardest part of this whole move to UK experience has been the endless amoutn of paperwork. But we're starting to see the light. "She-Crab" has received her UK work permit!! Woo-hoo! Now she's in the process of obtaining her British teacher credentials. She still has to get her work visa.
"Jimmy-crab", is still lally-gagging and hasn't done any paperwork, but it's not my fault. My employers still haven't given me the proper paperwork I need from them. The good thing is, as a journalist, I do NOT need a work permit or work visa, saving us a couple of hundred clams. But I do need to obtain a special document that verifies I am a journalist and obtain a special permit that will allow me to make unlimited UK entries and exists.
We're heading to London two weeks from today to go flat-shopping. Wish us luck!
