Today it is beyond freezing. The apartment is the coldest it has ever been and the heating system in the apartment has responded in its usual helpful fashion – it has shut down completely and now only blows cold air – so I have turned it off.
I have be wearing a beanie and gloves in the apartment and am lighting the fire early – but I am nearly out of firewood.
I may burn the new lounge suite because Cate says it will not work in our new house. It does not work in this one why so would it work anywhere else?
After my protestations about not being on the bank account the bank – in the form of Bradley – sent me an email saying they had decided that I could be added.
Unfortunately – he said - they will close the account 30 days after it is opened if we do not provide them with a Social Security number. The closure date is 4 April.
We do not arrive in the USA until 2 May and cannot apply for the number until we get there – then it will take 10 days to issue.
I have told him that this does not seem to make a lot of sense (and I am guessing it is not supposed to) and does he have a view of the appropriate way forward. Thus far he has remained silent.
He is after all billed as a ‘Financial Wellness Expert’ and it can hardly be financially healthy if our account is closed before we can use it.
On another matter – Monika was fitted with her first collar yesterday she has never worn one before. I was expecting problems but she took to it like a Duck to water – and looks quite fetching.
