Just a reminder.......

If you haven't already entered my first ever blog giveaway, here is the link to it.

Just spoke to my brother and he got back safe and sound, although he landed at 7am in Glasgow Airport, so hit the rush hour traffic getting out of Glasgow.  Still he's a truck driver, so he's used to driving in traffic.

Anyhow, it's a short and sweet post today, as I have a guy coming to service the furnace this morning; wanted to get that done before the cold weather starts and we have to switch the heating on.  I would like to think we don't have to switch on the heating for another month or so yet.....we'll see.

Then I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon, and while we are in the city we need to get our passports renewed.  So as I am typing this, I am printing out the forms online.  Still have to get the photo's taken, but that won't take long.

We get Canadian passports, despite the fact we can have British ones.  It's easier; however the Canadian passport is only for 5 years, whereas the British one is 10 years.

Have a great Thursday and hopefully I'll get a regular post done for you for tomorrow.

You're smart to stay ahead, whether it's passports or furnaces. Hope the staycation is going well. DH just figured out how tired he really is now that he can slow down a bit to catch up with himself.

Lovely idea. I've entered on your original post and now have my fingers crossed.

Online passports are a pain - but far better than queueing up to talk to some 'butter-headed' bureaucrat! LOL!
