Lots of Good News!

August 25th, 2020 at 04:46 am

Oh, what a good day! Her Majesty's Passport Office has cleared, printed, and sent DD's UK passport. We'll be able to avoid the visa process with its $500 fee and skip the NHS fees too. Now just waiting on its arrival.

In other good news, we took my car to the garage to investigate the annoying squeak. We were both sure it was shocks or struts. The mechanics all heard it too, but when they got it on the lift, they could see nothing amiss. And now the squeak is gone!

There's lots of bad news near us as you've perhaps heard. Wishing,hoping, praying and working for peace and justice.

    Great news! My experience at the mechanic is usually the opposite. I take it in for a squeak and they also find a rattle and a leak! Smile

    ...and then they say, that will be $800, please! Glad you have no bad car news and awesome passport news!

    Whoa that's great! Is this the first time you've applied for a UK passport for her? We've often thought we should try to get them for our girls, even though they were born in the US, since their dad was born a UK citizen (is currently a US citizen). Is that the same for your family--he's a US citizen and your kid was born in the US, and they still gave you a passport?

    And yes, I heard the news of course. Horrifying and enraging. I hope your area finds justice and peace! Mine has got the peace, mostly, but justice is a little slower to come.

    Good news for DD!!! Congratulations all around!

    Ceejay--This is indeed DD's first UK passport. It's fairly straightforward since her dad, like your girls', was born in the UK. I don't think current citizenship matters, but my DH is still a "subject of Her Majesty" as he says. I'm always hoping he's talking about me--not QEII

    congrats on the passport, our girls have dual citizenship, they are aussies and born here but their dad is american so they have birth abroad birth certificates and SSN so they can have both aussie and american passports and live in both countries with no problems..if they choose to...they have had it since they we babies...

    that is great about the car...

    Glad things worked out on the passport.

    Maybe the mechanic had a magic eye and as soon as they saw the car, it fixed itself. One can hope!

    Stay safe!

    Hee hee. That's good to know, thanks! Maybe we'll get around to it one of these days.
