OMG will it ever stop????
First, well, let's not start there, that way lies insanity.
Recently, Canadian taxes, plus some questions about last years taxes from two different departments, that's fun!
Then Eldest's passport needs renewal, but the required birth certificate is still languishing in Madrid. Finally that got sorted and it went off.
Today, Spanish taxes, of course, we were missing a piece of paper, so we have run around to get that, and now will have to scan it and send it down to the gestor.
Then, while waiting in the office I realised that my Ontario driver's license has expired. I have to drive the first day I get back, so a letter has to be sent off for a temporary one, with a photocopy of the license.
I will also now be getting a Spanish license before I go.
I have to drive when I get there.
THEN, the Canadian Embassy in Madrid just phoned, the payment hasn't gone through for Eldest's passport application, so the man, ever galant, hoofed it down to the post office here, as we paid through them, to see what's up. Seems it went through, and someone at the embassy signed for it, but the problem is theirs.
When he called they were, clar, at lunch.
Deserted islands start looking better and better.
I did swim in the Med today!!!! That was very very good.....
Ooooh, and we had steak and fresh cherries for lunch! The sun is shining, the sea is beautiful and life, despite the hassles, is very very good.
