    Left Lisbon at 28 degrees!
    I suppose lots of wine later may help.

    I'm feeling better and have found a relatively comfortable position to rest my arm allowing me to type for longer.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    Good on ya Fruity, you'll soon be back to your old self I'm sure.

    Well, your old self with additions ........... improvements even, eh?



    Is it me or is it really quieter than a very hushed quiet thing in The Arms lately?
    I find I'm posting less and less.
    And spending less time in here.

    So glad you are feeling better Fruity. You can now plan your holidays, and have something to look forward to.

    I think I may be able to drive this week, as pain has almost gone in my arm.

    Well that is three hours of my life I will never get back. I had to inform the DVLA and to do that I had to be certified. This meant an identity check by a UK Gove approved entity. I chose the Post Office.
    First of all there was a two hour wait while my passport details were checked, then I kept getting messages saying the access codes I was sent were either invalid or out of date, despite entering them seconds after receiving them. Then it asked specific questions about specific devices and apps or Windows, and wouldn't let me continue when I didn't have them, but didn't give an alternative method about using a laptop with Windows.

    Eventually I sorted it out using a different method. It then took two minutes to whip through the DVLA website to upload the info once the verification had been approved.

    I would have been better off printing the form and posting it. *sigh*

    I hope everyone has had more fun than me this avo.

    Oh poor you. I often revert to traditional old ways.
    If I am offered a choice, I always ask for a hard copy.
    I have to complete an end of life plan for my Uncle.
    The manager keeps sending it, in an encrypted form.
    Send it in a word doc, I say.
    I suppose I will have to print, then fill in by hand.

    Not a good day for me either. Never found the missing docs, got so upset.
    Life is so full of challenges at times.
