    Hi Jen, bank holidays will cause delays with post so it will be best to wait until the end of next week, maximum :)

    Just to put your mind at rest, as you have started the PIP process, Carls DLA will continue until a decision is made on PIP
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Ami2301 & cockneyrebel thank you so much for your advice it affects me as I don't want CARL58 worrying he's enough problems I'll do that for him I'm stronger than him,I think the sun did him good he's flaked out now 1st time in year's I've seen him sleep doubt he will wake but I'm not going to disturb him unless he needs the loo it's very rare he gets any form of sleep.thank you friend's jen
