Hi, Celeste and I were chatting on Skype yesterday, as usual on her day off, but there was a long period of silence as she fell out with me. I have been trying to hide from her that I was getting really stressed about all the forms to be filled in and the saving money for the visa application next January, this was all made worse by the EU Referendum result, the major thing with that is the thought of Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister. Stress makes my chest condition worse and the thought of the extreem right taking control of benefit and pension payments filled me with dread, the recipients of both are looked upon as non-productive, therefor could be slashed. All this, I am ashamed to say, made me snap at Celeste, so I had to tell her about the stress I was feeling, but, being a worrier, she then stated we postpone her arrival in Scotland for a year to take the pressure off me and help me get my health back a bit, I explained that it would extend the stress.
We are back on an even keel again now, but I think the answer to the EU vote, and the extreem right wing threat, is for Scotland to gain independence and retain our place in the EU. Sorry my English and Welsh friends, but we have to leave your anti-foreigner countries and be a welcoming country, standing on our own two feet.
Thanks for dropping in, take care.
