My shattered nerves! I have been in a bit of a comfort zone at work for a while and am in the process of taking over a new portfolio! Boy! I had forgotten how to chase my tail. So much to learn as it involves international settlements and Exchange Control rules which I have to freshen up on. The most frustrating part about it, is that I understand things one way, especially when it comes to Blocked accounts - ie residents who are in the process of emigrating non-residents, clients who are foreign and reside overseas. Somehow I can't get the answers that I need. I can see that I am going to need some serious patience! Not only me but the authorising agents as I am going to have PLENTY of questions!
Do you remember my friend who is donating her kidney to her adopted sister? I wrote about her story a while ago. Well, as we speak she is flying to Cape Town to prepare for the operation which takes place on Tuesday, 9th. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She is VERY scared!
