Now in the UK with Miss Tim. Thought I’d pop over and see friends and family as I didn’t see them at Christmas.
I do like going to the UK. Love everything about it. Well.. nearly everything…..
I notice that every airport in the world I have visited – (and I average 60 flights per year) all the people working at Immigration are from the Country I am visiting.
All accept when I come into the UK. Can’t remember the last time I was greeted by a British National?
Why is this a concern?
Well, I don’t take too kindly to being asked what the purpose of my visit to the UK is – as I hold a UK passport and I was born here and am a UK citizen. Is he? Cheeky twat.
But also, the ‘ethnic’ chap who processed us – handed back Miss Tims new passport and said he only needed (to stamp) her old passport (which has her visa in) as it has 2 weeks left until it expires.
I pushed the new passport back over the counter and said he needs to stamp the new passport – as the old one will expire in a few weeks. Again – he said he doesn’t need the new passport.
This was when I asked if a passport needs to have a minimum of 6 months validity to enter into the UK.
– the penny then dropped and said ‘oh yeah, you are right. I need to stamp the new passport’!!
That aside – when we arrived in the UK – it was snowing! For the 1st time in her life, Miss Tim saw/touched the snow. She can also check the box of having a snowball chucked at her.
Loving the cold, dark weather.
Been out on the last with the gang and suffered hangovers most days.
Time is flying by and will soon be back to work.
The only thing I am missing in Thailand is my cats.
