What else have I done recently? Oh yeah--last week.
Well we are applying for Canadian residency and we are on the final stages of the application and once again needed passport photos to send off. When I was a kid you could get a strip of passport photos for two quid. Nowadays it is closer to $25.
Anyway, expecting to shell out another $100 for the four of us, we set off at 9 am last Wednesday morning. Blacks didn't open till 10 am, so we went to Walmart. They didn't open till 10 am so we went home (DH had to get to work). We went back at 5 pm, after phoning and making sure they were open and the passport photos were available.
We got there only to be told, 'No, sorry the machine is broken.'
Bummer! It is bad enough when it is just you, but when you've dragged little kids in and out of shops and snowsuits all day, it is a real bummer!! So DH asked where was the nearest place and they pointed us to Shoppers Drugmart. Never been there so we were a bit dubious.
Anyway, long story not so short--they were having a sale and the photos cost $68 so I could effectively buy Allison Brennan's next two novels for free :D
Great shop--books and photos and a PO!!
