nice surprise

checked my bank balance today and had two unexpected payments from dwp esa one for £500 and one for £700 nearly fell off my chair. I rang to find out what was going on and apparently £500 was tax beck and £700 was backpay for esa and even better the lady told me I have been put in the support group for 3 years so I can at least have piece of mind for the future and get on with my arthur life without having to go to jobcentre appointments. I presume a letter will arrive at some point explaining how this

was decided but meanwhile I will enjoy a stressfree bank holiday. My journey through the benefit system has come to an end for the time being it only took 8 months.
