I picked up the official name change certificate from the mail distribution centre today (I am who I am - yay!), then headed over to the post office where I lodged the passport application, and they faxed it off to the passport office. Hopefully it's all in order now and I will have a passport very soon.
While in the shopping centre, I had a quick look at cameras. With a bit of luck I will get a new one before we leave, and Miss Tizz can use my current one all by herself (we've been letting her take photos with it for a while, to make sure she knows how to use it, but we haven't said it will be hers. Shhhhh!).
