2015: not bad so far - keep it up.
2014, and the last half of it especially, was a stressful year for me.
The two main causes of stress were our search for and purchase of our first flat, and my application for UK permanent residence.
I didn't really write about them much here, but I'm pleased to say that both things are finally over.
After a lengthy process navigating bureaucracy and circuitous banking procedures, the property purchase was finalised in December and we moved in January.
On Friday, I received my residence permit, thus concluding a stressful process of paperwork wrangling, test-taking, form-filling, fee-paying... and months of waiting.
My 2015 is off to a good start - how about yours?
