    Eek How much for a <expletive> passport?!!!

    I knew my passport was due for renewal about now so checked and it had expired last month. No big deal as I've not got any trips/holidays abroad planned any time soon, but as jobs can come up at short notice I don't want to be without a valid passport.

    So, went online to the Passport Office site to see what the deal was. I know it's been 10 years since my last one but crikey - £77?!!

    I know that the increased cost is probably due to the biometric aspect of them but it's still a fair old whack, but s'pose when you split it over 10 years it's not so bad!

    Right, anyone know a decent photographer who can do my photos for me?!

    lol, yeah I saw that! No surprise though as if you're 82+ then you're not going to be travelling too much or not have too much time left to travel! lol
