I tried to get in to the pass office last year but they wouldn't have me. They never told why 😢

I can't work in operations as hubby is a manager there.

So I think I have to stay where I am. There are lots of stairs so I'm hoping I'll lose some weight running up and down them. Although I confess that for the moment I walk up and down 😇

Default Re: Some updates.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) my 2nd attempt. The test is total of 3 separate tests. The map, a written test, and a practical although you only do the practical test if you pass the first 2. I think I have the map down, but the written test is tricky and most worrisome. If I don't pass, I have one more chance in a month.

Rumors the test has been made easier due to high fail rate, but I haven't been able to confirm that.


Also got an update from BC Housing, and of course only a rough estimate, but they said to expect at minimum a 3 to 6 year wait for housing.

Go do your best to nail it J.
To my mind you know all this stuff in your head, so try to empty your head of everything but this. Very hard .

I shall be sending you my best strong vibes and support coz I think you are simply brill.

If we were all close we would all be giving you a walk around the block, getting you to shake your arms and hands about , followed by a good brisk rub down with a damp newspaper ( with eyes closed of course) and telling you to breathe in and out sloooowly before sending you in.

You GO. Do your best. We're here.
