I have been very busy, getting on the National Health Plan for Doctors and Dentists, applying for a free bus pass, and acquiring a discount rail card. Also setting up a new bank account, which was quite funny, I needed an account here to prove I actually had an address, so I went to Lloyds Bank, set up appointment, was greeted by a very prim and proper gentleman in tweed, who took my information, showed me a video on services and about 5 minutes later threw up his hands and said “Congratulations Madam, you have excellent credit rating.” He only took one call when I was there, (a client needed 700 million pounds for his yachts, “no worries,” he said!!!) Wow that is a lot of money, we then proceeded to talk about British politics for the rest of the hour (he had given me hour time line), and I was out the door, right on time.
Where I am living is working is out very well, Sarah is just lovely, and a great cook so, every so often we arrange to have a meal together, plus she hosted a wonderful Australian dinner party, where I got to meet the neighbors!
I have been catching up with friends, and I will be travelling to York next week to see Nirmula and Robert. Nirmula does excellent spiritual work at the local hospital! And I will travel to Majorcia in June to visit friends, plus I will be visiting Sweden in July for 10 days to visit friends also.
A lot is going on in Cambridge, today I am attending reading of Plato at the Orchard Tea Room, which has couches and chairs in the orchard where you enjoy tea! The other day I was walking along the street, a man stopped me and said, “You are dressed alright! Would you like to attend lecture with the head of the Chinese Film Industry, which was starting in 5 minutes at Pembroke College?”
and for me, someone that loves movies, it was perfect!
More to come, what I have no idea!! And that is the adventure.
