My Indefinite Leave to Remain document has just been delivered. So that's that. 10 years of permission to remain and no restrictions on what we can do. 

We will apply to become citizens next year, because you never know when UKIP might gain power and retrospectively strip settlement rights from nasty foreigners what the future holds, and also because we believe in being committed to the community in which you live, if you're allowed. 

I though this timely piece in the Guardian captured for me very nicely the pernicious uncertainty in the whole process (though as ever, don't read the comments). Ridiculously privileged though we are, this uncertainty has touched most of the past 7 years. I'm really going to enjoy living with the knowledge that we can keep building our little lives here.
