Dear 'Begging Bowl Mates',
Well I/we (?) didn't get anything back in 2012. My wife and I depend on the small returns to treat ourselves to the small things in life like the fare from Mauritius to the UK and back. Luckily the last time I was back in the UK I developed pneumonia and had to go to hospital by ambulance, which in a sort of lucky/unlucky way was a blessing as I had a free hospital stay as it was an emergency. It seems that although we are UK pensioners we have to have a registered doctor in the UK to get treatment if we have deserted the old country for more than 10 years.
Anyway, are we due for another little windfall soon?
