I can finally say what I had wished to in my “Blog News Dec 2017” … this was fairly big news & quite a big thing as well as exciting for me.
The news was, my Sister had invited me & Mum over to hers (in Northern Ireland) for Xmas. (Sis invited us maybe mid to end of October) This was quite a big thing for me, I had never been on a plane nor had I been to Northern Ireland before.
I somewhat put off even thinking about it for a few weeks, (was just too scary!) till I could put if off NO LONGER & had to start looking into what it involved etc.
I had no passport (probably wouldn’t get one in time), What else is there instead of a passport?, How would we get to the airport?, Would I be able to manage my luggage ok? (I have some mobility issues & it gets painful to walk sometimes) Would something come up that stops me from going & so on.
As the weeks progressed things slowly came together & issues fell (like dominoes) one by one.
The biggest issue was getting Photo ID for myself, my sister send me a link to a site called Citizen’s Card, I had a look to see what you needed to do & get the process going. A few days later my mum come over & we went to the library to print the form & some other bits out.
Then it was a case of finding someone to sign the form & documents I needed to send with the form. Finally got the form posted off, now it was just matter of waiting to see if I got a Citizen’s Card or not.
I was then happy for my sister to go ahead & book the tickets. The weeks turned into days & days in to hours, until it was time to leave!
