THE MEETING WITH MARY

SO OUR MEETING WITH MARY WENT WELL.

SHE WAS NICE. I GOT ALONG JUST FINE WITH HER.

SHE RANG THE PLACE THAT IS SUPPLYING THE FUNDING. WE HAD A LONG TALK TO THEM. SHE PUT THE PHONE ON LOUD SPEAKER. AND WE WERE ABLE TO GET ALL THE INFO WE NEEDED TO PROCEED WITH THE APPLICATION.

THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY I ALREADY GOT 10 THOUSAND EUROS FROM THEM. FOR WHAT I AM NOT SURE. I KNOW I GOT MONEY FOR TAXI’S TO TAKE ME TO MEDICAL APTS. I ALSO GOT A CCTV UNIT FOR MY HOUSE. OTHER THAN THAT I DID NOT GET ANYTHING ELSE. TO MY KNOWLEDGE THAT COMES TO 5000 EURO. THE CAP IS 15 THOUSAND.

THE GUY ON THE PHONE SAID TO PUT QUOTATIONS IN AND ONCE MY NAME COMES UP AN ADVISOR WILL BE ASSIGNED TO ME. THEN THEY’LL EITHER APPROVE OR DENY MY APPLICATION.

I WANTED TO TALK TO MARY ABOUT APPLYING FOR MORE PA HOURS BUT WE DIDNT HAVE TIME AS THE CALL TO THE FUNDING PLACE WENT ON FOR AGES. SO I’LL HAVE TO RING HER IN A WEEK OR TWO AND MAKE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT TO MEET HER AGAIN TO GO THROUGH THAT.

SHE WAS REALLY NICE THOUGH. SHE PUT US AT EASY REALLY QUICKLY. SHE WAS CHATTY AND VERY FRIENDLY. I LIKED THE WAY SHE TRIED TO CHAT TO US TO PUT US AT EASE.

SHE CALLED US CAROL ANNE TOO WHICH WAS NICE. AND WHEN WE CALLED THE FUNDING PLACE WE TOLD HER WE’D HAVE TO GO BY OUR BIRTH WITH THEM NAME AND SHE WAS OK WITH THAT AS WELL.

OVERALL IT WAS A GOOD MEETING. I NEEDNT HAVE BEEN WORRIED. NO SHE’S NOT KAREN, BUT I THINK I CAN LEARN TO LIKE HER.

  1. So glad it went well, Liz. Sometimes, it takes a while to really feel comfortable with a new person, so I think you coped very well. Getting funding for anything these days is a nightmare. It’s the same over here in England. It takes such a long time before you get something that’s important to you. The funding people don’t always appreciate that. It does sound like your people are fairly reasonable, though. I hope it goes through and they accept your claim. Take care. Love Ellie xxx ❤

    1. I hope so. The thing is, I have to do most of the work myself, I have to go to the people get quotes et cetera, so she doesn’t really have to do any of the work but hopefully the funding will come through for me

  2. It’s fantastic Liz that you got along. I was pretty sure it will be so though. I’m glad it went well. I can only agree with Ellie that getting funding for anything is an absolute nightmare, I was just going through it for an umpteenth time recently, not successfully, so I hope you’ll get it. 🙂
