A week ago right to this minute, AJ and I were saying our vows 😀

Today, we spent most of the morning in the social security office — talk about coming down to earth with a bump! — trying to get me the magic number that will allow me to open a bank account and get a driving license and generally function in society. We did go the day after I arrived in the country (with the visa I entered on, I’m entitled to an SSN immediately) but apparently the system is old and slow and they needed at least ten days for me to register in it, despite the fact my point of entry was in the same state. Which is… reassuring. Government bureaucracy is the same the world over.My SSN should be arriving in the next week or two, and after that — joy of joys! — I get to sit another driving test. Getting in some more practise being behind the wheel on the wrong side of the road will keep me busy until then, and the screams from the back seat provide the perfect soundtrack to my motoring. Despite the looks of terror and the way the neighbours take cover as I set off down the street, I think I’m doing quite well 😀

It being November, I’m signed up for Nanowrimo — don’t forget to add me if you’re taking part! — and I’m hoping to have the first book in Ryan and Sameer’s story finished soon. They’re secondary characters in my Blowing It series; the first two books are out now. Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter for updates.

Yes, moving between countries in the EU is definitely a lot easier, not nearly as many hoops to jump through before you can actually function. I hope it won’t take too long to get you up and running (driving) again.

And what do you know? We already were NaNo buddies. Good luck with finding all the words 🙂

    heh, I’m working on it! Hopefully if we move back to the UK it’ll be easier, although I have a friend who — having married a Canadian — says not!
