I've reached the stage today where I throw my hands up in the air. Whatever happens, happens. There is nothing I can do. It'll probably change tomorrow.
We've been agonising over the lack of progress of the South African Police clearance.
My new boss is okay with waiting for me to arrive in NZ to start my job. So no pressure there then. Clearly this is not going to happen any time before the scheduled date of 11 January.
Unfortunately the health medical done at the end of September expires end of this month. Which may mean spending more money to get another one done, if the SAP clearance does not arrive any time soon so we can lodge the visa before the end of December.
Doesn't look good, does it?
Getting myself worked up will not make it happen sooner.
I am so tired of explaining over and over again, mostly to the same people. I now simply avoid answering any questions about the move and direct the conversation elsewhere.
Maybe I should just give them another beer instead.
