Will Google 2 Step lock me out?

I have moved from Argentina back to the UK. Whilst there I set up my Google account with 2-Step Verification using my Argentinian phone number. Now back in the UK I no longer have access to that phone and as I unpacked I realised I threw away the notebook in which I jotted down the emergency codes in the move. Am I screwed?

I access my gmail through Sparrow on a MacBook and through Mail on an iPad and both still work. I have also accessed a document in my Google Drive without problems but I'm concerned that if I access my account or Gmail through a browser I will get asked for the 2nd Step and I'll be unable to provide it.
I do have a secondary email registered with the account and I don't yet have a phone to add a new number.
What will happen if I try to log in to Gmail and will I be able to resolve this?
