Re: Renewing UK passport

“Drastically altered” is very subjective.

Mine renews in 2020. I was three weeks married when it renewed last. I’ll be a decade married by the time it renews agains. Does this constitute...

Re: Two years :)

Good stuff Laura :thumbsup:

I've been here 2 years and 2 weeks now and a lot of what you say resonates with me.

I was there at Trent Bridge for his hat-trick against India in 2011 - magic - but I wholeheartedly agree with your statement.
