I just got an email telling me that my application will be processed. Unless there is something wrong with the application, I should be home in October. Words fail me.

This morning I tried on my UK size 10 jeans and they fit. So I wore them today and wasn't uncomfortable at all. I credit the new Waitrose that has opened along my walk to the office in the morning and Pilates.

The reason I was reminded of the smaller jeans was that it was exactly a year ago I bought the size 12 jeans I've been wearing on Fridays up until today.

In my mail box today was a letter from the Swedish tax authorities, letting me know that they owe me a bit over SEK 2'800. How nice of them! What precipitated this disclosure, I don't know but it's a welcome one.

Apparently I have to write to them if I want them to send me the money. Gladly!, I say. The amount covers about half of my car rental in Sweden in August.
