This morning we had an 8:15am appointment to renew three children’s US passports and register Kaylah’s birth. 8:15am in central London. Mmm. We decided to drive in and park within walking distance. It worked a charm. Left home at 5:15am, arrived at 7am and had an hour to spare (but if we’d left later, I guarantee we’d still be stuck in traffic!)
So we got to the embassy just at the right time for me (Peter) to receive a deposit that made everyone else laugh a lot. Melanie says Pigeon, I say Condor. Ah well, a funny memory I suppose!
We were done by 11am, so we enjoyed the sights for a couple of hours (Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey) then back to Oxford Street for a dash through the rain back to the car. Home by 4:30pm. Now everyone is fast asleep, and this showered Dad is about to join the sleeping family!
