Well.. I knew I had jinxed myself when I stupidly wrote that I would hopefully not have to write any more moany emails to Amey regarding our shituation. How dumb am I by now to fall for their promises yet again?
I won’t bore you with the details because I am so beyond exhausted having to explain my situation over & over again.. In short, we applied for a move under medical reasons (legit, this was always the plan regardless of the place we were marching into). They kept saying that’s fine. When someone from Amey came to inspect the place after my complaints became a stage 2, she just kept telling me it’s just ‘old & tired’. Now, forgive me for being a ‘snob’ here – but anyone else think that pubes & mould is just ‘old & tired’??
Anyhoo, she said yep – apply for a move with the relevant forms & paperwork (done). You’ll be moved in as little as 3 weeks. I thought ‘Thank fuck for that, finally some light at the end of the tunnel here’. Hence my exciting prospects on IG. I wait & I wait for a response, it was only when I chased it up that I finally had a reply to tell me they will not be moving us & that they don’t deem my issues to be medical. So I’m out £450 for an Occupational Therapist report for absolutely sweet FA. To say I’m pissed is a huge understatement. So yet again, I’m back to square one & am now going through even more channels/people to come to some resolution.
The important part:
I know that I said I would have to stop orders whilst I’m here, & that was my plan knowing I had a matter of weeks until they would move us. Now that that’s been shot to shit I have had to seriously reconsider what I’m going to do. I have already had so many enquiries for Christmas cards & other orders & I miss it so much! My site has been locked for a month now & I want to get back to work regardless of where I am. So, I have decided to organise a space for it all, I have cleaned it to high heaven & I will be reopening my site this Saturday!! (10/11/18).
I will be reopening with my new 2018 Christmas collection & I hope that you all love them! I will unfortunately not be able to do any foiled cards as that just still isn’t possible here, but all printed cards will be available to order.
So come check it out on Saturday 10th November at 10am! I may even have something in store for you all as a thank you for sticking around during what has been an awful time for me.
I know that nobody likes a moaning myrtle & I’m not asking for a pity party but this has been my reality for the past month & I won’t shy away from that, too many people are stressing themselves trying to look perfect & I just don’t have the energy for that. So I just wanted to say thank you for the support & I really appreciate every message/call/text. xx
