how to renew my passport

Get used to that title – I’ll probably use it a lot!

I know this job has been sneaking up on me, but the passport expires this year and I really do need to renew it.

I’ve got the forms through from the passport service and I’ve filled in the renewal form. I need to take the photo now and get it printed out.

Unfortunately I need to send the old – or strictly speaking current – passport away with the renewal and that will have to wait until after I’ve done my trip to Finland in the middle of Feb. They probably would get it turned round by then, but you can’t count on it!

The big sting of course is the price. £77.50 is pretty hard to justify for a straightforward renewal, however much the behind the scenes processing costs are.

Ah well. I’m screwed. And I know it. I might as well smile. 🙂
