This is how about form filling!

Follow these instructions…


Ok I admit it I don’t know everything about filling in forms, but having spent most of yesterday trying to fill in an application form I thought I would share some tips with you.

  1. Don’t think all forms are easy. I made that mistake and suffered for it
  2. If you have downloaded a form check the formatting before you start. This saves a lot of time in the long run and is something I discovered by chance.
  3. Allow yourself plenty of time, 6 hours is not that unusual.
  4. Make sure you have an ample supply of your favourite beverage, mine was coffee but other forms are available. NOTE if yours is coffee too may I suggest DECAFF!
  5. Give yourself a break. Once every 15 minutes seems to be about right. Use this time to swear, rant and generally relieve stress.
  6. When telling your teenage child about how long filling in form took do NOT expect any sympathy. Mine replied with “You seem to be only managing to do one task a day” – She is still alive but GGGGGRRRRRRRRR!
  7. Once you have finished filling in the form make sure you save it. Or better still save it as you go. This is very important and one thing that I highly recommend for your sanity and for the others around you.
  8. Make sure you print off the form and read through.
  9. After spotting numerous mistakes print off a clean copy.
  10. Now fill in form by hand and forget ever trying to do any forms on the computer ever again.

I hope this short guide will help you all.

Have a terrific Tuesday.

Much Love S xx
