[The Life of Shaun #419] British Mercury

Yesterday I received the official letter from the Home Office notifying my my application has been successful.  Turns out the other letter was the council's response to them being notified and reserving a ceremony date for me.  Kudos to Tower Hamlets for being so efficient!

Not sure if Royal Mail was slow, or if the Home Office didn't post my letter right away, but it was printed on 27 August.  I applied, in Tower Hamlets, on 16 of August.  That means my application made it from here to Liverpool, was processed, reviewed, approved and over and done with in eleven days.  I have some friends that applied for an initial visa to America that would have been overchuffed with 111 days.

Now, how quickly can they approve my applications for the dole and housing benefits...  ;-P
