On potential existence

I am on my way to the embassy.

My boyfriend booked – and his mum paid for – a weeks holiday in Lanzarote. It’s something like an Easter present, and something like a ‘You-must-have-a-break-before-you-have-a-breakdown’ mission. Having spent the last year in an unending battle with exams, quitting work, moving house, renovating, decorating, unpacking and furniture building, I think we deserve it.

We’re flying out on Saturday.

At least, we might be.

Flying involves passports, and I still don’t have one. I don’t have a job yet either, but that’s not really essential to flying, especially if someone else is paying.

I phoned the embassy as part of the research for my existence, and they told me they could issue me with a temporary passport, for a fee of 121€.

The holiday was a very good deal, so we decided to split the cost between us.
I made an appointment, and am on the way there now.

There’s a long list of things to bring to the appointment, and I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten one.

I really hope they don’t mind….

According to the embassy it isn’t an identity document. However. My future employers said I can use the temporary passport to sign the paperwork, and bring the real one when it arrives.

Wish me luck!
