Its been quiet on this front, primarily because there’s not been much movement. We did receive a letter from HMRC regarding our tax credits (child tax credit and working tax credit), asking for more evidence from my husband’s self employment. Nothing unusual there, entirely anticipated and waiting for my husband to pull that evidence together… Continue reading An Update…

I’ve been having to chase up some things with Speech and Language Therapy. It started yesterday when I wrote to the Community Paed Secretary to make a correction on the doctor’s report, from my son’s appointment on Tuesday 2nd Feb.
