re: Toronto meetup 9th November

I’ve been vaguely wondering what happened to meet ups :)

I’m in TorontoTown all next week (22 - 28), so can’t make Nov 2 :( However, if anyone is up for it, could do Thursday or Friday 25/26.

However, I’ll repeat myself yet again:

Re: Delays in first passport for child born overseas

Yes, that can be “normal”.

How many times do you need us to tell you so? You were told “at least” 8 months. For some countries it can take years.

Re: How do you have your Marmite - or not ;)

Marmite. A good dollop enhances insipid gravy.

Re: Sir Roger Bannister

Right. RB first broke the 4 minute mile on the Iffley Road track in Oxford. Landry bettered that time 46 days later.

Re: Winter 2017-18

It was 4C+ all day yesterday, 9C this morning when I woke up. I have the heating off and windows open. It’s been pouring rain too.

Re: French national eligible via British by descent?

If I understand correctly, the OP has been living in the UK since 1981, and is ~60 years old.
