At the weekend, I decided it was time to GET ORGANISED.
I think I’ve been over-embracing the new not-a-control-freak-anymore version of myself. By which I mean, I booked flights for Bali, then I booked accommodation and then I did nothing.
I knew that I would need to sort out an international driving license but, busy with essays, the thought wandered off to the back of my mind. Until last week. When I had a mini meltdown, thinking I’d left it too late and that there was no chance I could possibly get it sorted in time and that we’d have to change all of the plans because I had been too disorganised to sort out driving licenses.
Which, as usual, was an unnecessarily dramatic response to a completely solvable problem.
I remembered researching the international licenses several months ago and recalled that the forms were only available in a few post offices scattered across London. Which would have meant a Saturday spent traipsing across London all for the sake of a piece of paper.
Thankfully, it transpired that they were available on the internet. So, with a few passport photos left over from my Russian visa application, I was able to gather all the documentation together in about an hour. And apparently it only takes 10 working days. So with exactly 32 days until I leave for Bali, there was no need to panic at all!
