Learn Something New Everyday

Shimelle's annual class for September, Learn Something New Everyday, started today. I did attempt this last year (LSNED 2010), but lost momentum by the third week. I'm not optimistic that I'll get very far this year either, especially with little Jasmine now on the scene, but I'll try and do as much as I can. For now I'll keep my learning to blog posts, but maybe one day I'll get my act together and make a mini-album. :D Or maybe I'll do it all digital...we'll see. With Gus back at work from next week, time is going to be very precious.

So what did I learn today?

Today I learned that due to Government incompetence, I may not be eligible for government assistance unless I give my baby up for adoption!

Major *FAIL* by the Australian Government.

I have read and re-read the question a million times. If I have it wrong, please let me know!! I think someone needs to review this form. Mind you, like most government forms, it is so complex and confusing in the first place that I seriously doubt anyone in Government administration can figure it out any more than the general public!

So that, with much sarcasm and shaking of the head, is what I learned today! LOL

Are you participating in this class too? Let me know as I'd love to see what you're learning every day!

I'm sure Govt. forms are made complicated to try and put folk off trying to claim anything...

Hmm...that form makes no sense. It looks as straight forward as the forms we have in Britain, at least we aren't the only ridiculous country! I'm taking the class this year as well, I have a 2 year old and 5 month old so no idea how far I will get lol

I've seen a few people that are doing it, but I just couldn't give it any time with the start of a new term :) looking forward to seeing everything you learn, hopefully some days you'll learn slightly more cheery things. Poor you, governments don't get things right very often do they!!

government Forms are the worst! Immigration forms are awful too, we've just gotten over dealing with the British ones, now we are dealing with the American ones. It's a headache for sure!
