Wonder when they are planning to tell her

As soon as flaming possible I hope. She's asking questions that because she no longer has a right to know, I can't answer honestly. Whilst I don't like the woman, and whilst she's totally fricking useless, this is a nightmare.

1) That you should never use burgundy hair dye near a pale blue bathmat......four washes later its still there

2) Kitchen floors should be scrubbed more than once every 11 months even if the kitchen is only the size of a broom cupboard

3) If you put out a couple of hob nobs on the back porch you can attract a whole flock of rosellas, but if you put out food labelled "Guaranteed to attract parrots and rosellas" they will turn up their beaks and go elsewhere

4) Being at work really IS more relaxing than having four days off

That people 'wasting' visa's and/or attempting to scam the immigration process, pisses me off more than it ever did before now that I'm an Australian Citizen.
