Emily The Traveller

Posted by Caroline on March 5, 2007

I am proud to report that Emily is now the proud owner of her very own passport. We’ve been thinking about getting her one for a while now, but since booking a trip to Canada for a family wedding next month it has of course become a necessity.

That said, getting the little red book has been no easy task. Having filled in all the forms and sent them off complete with appropriate photos, we were out when the passport was first delivered, and since my husband had to sign for it, in place of a passport we were left with a delivery note instead.

We duly re-arranged to have it sent, and spent virtually an entire Saturday sitting at home waiting for it to show up. When it didn’t by late afternoon, we could wait no longer and went out, only to return a few hours later and discover that no courier had turned up with it. Further investigation revealed that the courier company were told that my husband no longer lived at our address (he did last time I looked), and after many cross words were exchanged, we finally arranged to have it delivered once again the following Thursday, both he and Emily were at my mother-in-law’s (and I was at work).

This time, I’m happy to report, it did turn up, and very nice it is too. Although we can’t help being amused by the bit on the inside back page next to Emily’s personal details, which says that the holder does not have to sign. Perhaps in lieu of a signature she could just put in a big scribble in crayon?
