The car still isn't sorted, but I have more pressing problems that need my attention. I'm actually going on a proper holiday for the first time since 2000, when I went for a week to Glastonbury and got stuck indoors during the fuel crisis. Therefore, a new passport (and a re-mortgage!) is needed asap as such things are needed for the US and Canada, I hear. Never people to do anything by halves, my parents are taking me on a tour from Toronto to Montreal via Boston.
A restful trip, this will not be.
