passport photos

If you are trying to get your UK passport renewed in Spain then the following email I’ve had may be helpful to you. We had our passport photos taken outside the police station in Marbella. We had a call last week letting us know that Erika’s wasn’t correct, too much torso and not enough of her face. We have to resubmit photos to Madrid, not signed again, but it means a delay.

Hi,

Just to let you know that recently I’ve been asked to do many passport photos for those needing to renew their UK passports as I have the facilities at my photographic studio to take photos to the new UK Passport standards and requirements.

Kind Regards

UK passport renewal in Spain

If you need a UK passport renewal whilst living in Spain then the link below will take you to the website where you can download and print off all the necessary forms for a passport renewal, a first time passport and a passport for children. Remember a child’s passport only lasts for 5 years, not 10 as adults, and it can catch you out if you don’t check.

The child’s class teacher can sign the  photographs and near the police station in Marbella there is a passport booth.

Chain Mail

I have just received this.

“This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So, forward this to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui. The one who does not forward…..will be without money.”

Do adults really think that there is some power out there in the atmosphere that would give you money because you happen to forward a crass email like this to people? Where was that power when the tsunami hit Japan?

Enter the lottery, buy a premium bond ticket but please don’t send me chain emails…..

Stomping off now to eat some chocolate……

Argos Review

I ordered last week from Argos some perfume to be delived by courier yesterday for my mother in law’s birthday gift. The courier charge was £5.95 which I paid as the actual item was less than in many other online shops.

Mistake.

Today my mum in law had to tell us that no birthday gift had arrived. Argos have told me they are very sorry ( well I want to see your blood) and they have now arranged for delivery on Monday, a whole five days later than I ordered and several days after the birthday. No discount off the delivery charge. (Argos  Customer Service can courier over 4 fingers and 3 of their toes and I will kindly accept that as a suitable discout.)

 This is the second time that I have had just terrible delivery from Argos and safe to say, the last…..

UPDATE 21st February

After a 3rd email Argos Customer Services offered to refund my £5.95 delivery charge.

I have just installed a plug in making helpful-ideas.com a do follow website for those that leave more than one comment, it means you get some link juice from mine to your own website but only if you leave comments that I approve. So if you talk about valium, blow up dolls or penis enlargement I’m afraid I can’t guarantee any extra help…..Otherwise happy to provide some help..if it works. :)
