This afternoon was a panic. Weeks ago I received a letter from DVLA saying I needed to update my photo driving license. I read the date as 19th October so filed it away in the October file. Got it out yesterday to see that it was 19th September, ahhhhhh. Being a bit tired, stressed & hamsterish. I panicked & thought I would have to take my driving test again (yep I know what a wally) So off to the General Post Office this afternoon armed with old license & phot license and twenty quid, yep countries gone mad. Very lovely lady said no worries we can do it all here for you for another four pounds fifty pence. £24.50 for a photo card when I dont look any different, grrr. SO into the booth I go and she tells me to take my glasses off. My old photo has glasses on and I dont want a photo with my horrid cancer scar showing for ten years, so I made a bit of a fuss. SO off she goes to get advice and comes back and says well if you want your glasses on then you have to get a photo elsewhere for five pounds. Huh??? By then I was so fed up I said okay take it here. Well a lady walked past her and looked at the screen & could barely contain herself. If I had had my eyes closed I could have past as a corpse. The daft booth flash was so bright that I only needed a powdered wig to look very 18th century. DH will be in hysterics when I get it in two to three weeks time.... Oh and they send away the paper and the photo license and give you a slip of paper to show the Police, should you be so unfortunate to get stopped. Well I hope Im never stopped with the new picture, cause they will send me to the station to give everyone a laugh.
Then I went to Morissons to get a new iron because one of my workshop irons sort of smoky blew up. But they only had expensive ones and got embroiled in scrabbling about on the floor looking for a poor old ladies money. Such is life! x
