Mine's in my handbag, so when I leave Loughisle/Kilcommon (except when I go to Curreeny) it's always with me ~ learnt the hard way that *I'm* 1 of those people that need it as proof of id at the oddest of times. When I travel without the handbag (I don't actually like having 1, but it's in my shopping baqs permanently with cards, wallet & the missing chequebook...well not with the missing chequebook because it's missing) it goes in my rucksack. My aunt had a far worse problem than I do & she had to carry hers at all times & in every place

That kind of thing is one of the reasons I'm against the idea of non-EU nationals having to carry ID. If you don't have ID with you, how do you prove you're not one of the ones who need to carry it?

It still hasn't shown up, but at least my marriage cert did, and I was able to use that together with other id.

I found my decree absolute when I was looking for song lyrics, but my birth cert....Nope. I had to explain that my marriage cert. was taken from me when I was divorced when I arrived here & couldn't provide a marriage cert.

Glad you were able to do things a different way. bem's having fun with everything now that she's changed her name on her marriage :)

I'm not particularly finding it fun. But I'm kind of between names, which makes things awkward. I've changed some things, not others, and I'm not sure now if I want to.

bem was adamant at 1 point that she wouldn't change her name on marriage, but as the years go by she wants nothing to do with her father ~ he has no mention on her marriage certificate & she wants to drop Vyvyan as well as his surname as that is 1 of his names that he passed on to her. The only thing that worried her was that in dropping her maiden name, she was dropping my surname as I changed mine ~ *political reasons really & I like being awkward! If I change my surname now it would have to be through marriage (NOT likely) or I'd take my mother's g/mother's name of Fennell, but I love the pause, apology or struggle that follows my first name when used by non-Welsh speakers. I'm happy with just 1 name anyway (OK 2: Killi & my other!)

* being England in Wales ~ not good, in Ireland, very not good!

She could take Fennell or your maiden name as a middle name.

bem is BethanMyfanwy Vyvyan Amphlett neé Llwyd ~ quite long enough & I named her Bethan anyway! I wanted her to be Eirlys, but s wouldn't let me have a grey snowdrop, so in the reverse of the Snow Spider she became Bethan. The year she was conceived was the year The Snow Spider won the Tir na n'Og & I was working for the awarding body :)
