Earlier I went to go and get my photo taken for my new passport. Dave and I want to go to Belgium at some point, and I've not had a valid passport since I was pre-teen! I'm now nearly 24, so it's definitely long overdue. Does it bother me that it's been so long since I've been abroad? Not overly! I think there is so much to offer in the United Kingdom, but I am ready to spread my wings and have a nose around Europe!

So I got my passport photo taken in a booth in my local Post Office. Not only was I shocked at the fact that it cost £5 to get the photos taken (absolute rip off) but when I got home and compared my pictures to the ones I had taken for my work ID just over 2 years ago, I was also surprised to see how much I have aged in the last few years.

Two years of solid night shifts. I think I look a lot older...maybe it's just me being paranoid. Also my roots look horrendous at the moment! Determined to grow out my 7 years worth of red hair dye! Passport photos always make me laugh - this could definitely be a lot worse, although they are both worthy of air time on Crimewatch!

    1. Believe me, I don't feel like wonderwoman!!
