Miss Tizz's passport arrived today. She was a wee bit excited, and pleased that I'd left the envelope for her to open. Of course, the X-man wanted to know where his was, but I think he understood my explanation that a child's passport only lasts for five years, so it would be a waste to get it a couple of years before it's needed.
The Seven Ages of Paris, by Alistair Horne, for me - I'll add them to the reading list. I also borrowed the library's copy of Amelie, which I'm looking forward to watching, before heading off to Paris and perhaps visiting some of the locations used in the film.
