Consulate, coincidences and beer

I took a day's leave on Friday and went into the SA consulate to apply for a new passport. Wasn't looking forward to it, the consulate have a pretty bad reputation for being as dreadful, unfriendly and unpleasant as visiting Home Affairs back in SA. In the end it went rather smoothly, I'd made triple-sure all my paperwork was sorted, and the people who helped me were quite friendly, so I can't complain.

On top of that, I bumped into an old friend whom I haven't seen in about 7 years, standing in the queue. And since the forms and fingerprinting rigmarole was over sooner than I expected, I was able to do some walking and window shopping in London, and get home in time to try out a pub up the road from us, and discovered they have Brakspear on tap. So all told, Friday was a pretty good day.
