Papers, papers, papers

This morning I went with Helen and Theresa to try to sort out paperwork, seeing as Theresa has just started her first job in Spain. I thought we’d manage the tax office, and maybe Social Security. To everyone’s surprise and delight, we got Theresa registered for tax and social security, Helen registerd for Social Security too (no translation of wedding certificate needed) and we even managed to set up a savings account for them at the bank.

We still need to get them registered with their local Health Centre (which probably means a trip to Garafía) and at some stage we still need to sort out their driving licenses, but the end of their immigration paperwork is in sight, thank goodness.
