  1. He tried that earlier in the week and it still didn't work apparently. Ed
  2. I'm starting to wonder if 'Potty Pirate' might not actually be the children's entertainer but a saboteur. Ed
  3. If the helpline still exists they clearly don't want you ringing it as I can't find a number anywhere online. Ed
  4. Perhaps clear your cache on the device and delete any cookies before trying again. Ed
  5. That's the first time I've heard that recommended for someone heading TO the UK. Ed
  6. Excellent. Your first post on the forum and you start with a pun. Welcome! Ed
  7. Let's hope your MP isn't Diane Abbott or you are likely to get a reply along these lines: ---- Dear Constituent, Much as I support campaigns for independence, freedom from oppression and struggles against injustice, I'm unable to help you in regard to your request to contact the DVLA. The Liberation Army in DV, wherever that may be (and my geography is a little ropey), is certainly a worthy cause but due to previous issues relating to my support for other 'revolutionary groups' I wouldn't want to damage my political reputation by getting involved this time. Yours sincerely. DA ---- Ed
  8. There are three common methods of getting the health pass in France, all of which require proof and can be included on the app: Vaccination Recent recovery from Covid A test conducted within the last 72 hours Option 4 is a letter from your doctor exonerating you on health grounds from being vaccinated. There is a small list of eligible conditions. I wonder if a letter from a British doctor, formally translated into French by a certified official, would have the same result for children. If the doctor states that for medical reasons the child can't be vaccinated (it being not legally offered/licenced in the country for that age group) then that might work. Ed
  9. Perhaps they should offer a daily prize draw with each submitted test being eligible. That way you'd be sure to check your results just in case you'd won the prize. Ed
  10. But look on the bright side. Armorique has half the number of engines which can go wrong too. Ed
  11. This popped up in my news feed this evening. http://travelweekly.co.uk/news/tourism/brittany-ferries-seeks-urgent-clarity-over-pcr-test-switch Ed
  12. I think you fill in the date you leave Spain assuming you head straight home. If you pass through France then put the date you leave France for England. Ed
  13. Shouldn't that be 'fewer than 12 months'? Ed
  14. I point animatedly, shout 'look a whale!' and then grab whatever I can. Ed
  15. Try it with some you trust's address instead. A child, a family member etc. It doesn't matter if it's not the same person as the traveller as long at they can forward you the documents. If it still refuses to work then it's the site which is faulty. Ed
  16. The concept was never designed to handle situations where there are only 5 lemon meringue pies but 20 takers. Ed
  17. Create a Gmail account for situations like that. They always seem to work and never get rejected in my experience. Ed
  18. Maybe BF have an allotment contract guaranteeing exclusivity up to a certain date (say a month before the start date) after which the owner can let the property directly. Ed
  19. And one further pun to add to the above (and after this I'm struggling): If Nodwad gets entangled in seaweed while walking Alfie along the beach he needs to call the ...! I'll let you fill in the answer. Ed
  20. I think Elaine mentioned Montpellier in the past but that may have changed. Ed
  21. Not in public areas such as supermarkets or on transport, no. Some of the companies I visit stipulate blue (or white) surgical masks and provide them for their employees. Schools also recommend those masks but are not insisting if parents prefer washable alternatives. Ed
  22. A number of French supermarkets, including Carrefour and Monoprix, are trialing such schemes at present. For example: You pay 10€ per month up front but get 10% off all purchases as long as you spend over 100€ each month. Or a variation on the theme. Given how much I pump into Super U each year I'm hoping they will offer something similar. Ed
  23. And if Alfie meets an attractive Spanish dog and gets her pregnant then Nodwad will have to call the whelp desk. Ed
  24. The centre number appears to be: 021 427 7801 The number for the port should be: 021 437 8884 All the port contact details are here: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.brittanyferriesfreight.co.uk/contact-us&ved=2ahUKEwjh1v3cxI_zAhVOCxoKHUuYCJIQFnoECAMQBQ&usg=AOvVaw11jhhPJ4LCTnKHt81nvG1v Ed
  25. Meanwhile, any dog-related problems are dealt with by the yelp desk. Ed
