Visa Granted - Friday 31st August

Friday 31st August
For those of you who know me, even just a little bit, worrying is something I do with finesse.  I worry about the usual things, I worry about the unusual things.  I worry about the things I have no control over and I worry about how much to worry over it all.  So, after four weeks and three visits, as well as numerous telephone calls, to the visa application centre and over £100 in associated costs, I was beginning to fear my visa for India would not materialise.  I ended up giving myself a deadline of - Friday 31st August - by which, if it wasn’t sorted, I would need to look at alternative options for the coming year.  Of course, volunteering being something I have had my heart set on for at least two years and being completely useless at any sort of failure (perceived or real) I am not sure alternatives would have cut it.  I want this opportunity so much I can taste it.  But, as it turns out (as is often the case) I needn’t have worried...or so the saying goes!
