A proper resident

Fiver received her residence visa today.

So now she can apply for a liquor license, use the hospital and set up a bank account (not in that order). Stuart's company has kindly agreed to organise the visa, which involved lots of standing round in queues. The one thing she had to do herself was to have a blood test. Yuk! The most embarrassing thing was the fact that Ahmed, who drives people to their blood test, walked her straight past a long queue of people waiting in line. fiver spent enough time in the UK to learn the value of queuing, and was very embarrassed to be able to jump the queue, just because she has connections.
