Date of Receipt of Passport:12/04/2012!!!!!

I paid for what the lady at the post office called 'signed for' delivery of my documents and they were put through my letter box - I don't understand why I paid £3 more only for it to be put through letter box anyway!

Tried to ring to book appointment 23/03 but they said all fully booked out for next 2 weeks. I was told to ring this morning 24/03 and still no success as fully booked again so now have to wait till Tuesday to ring as 2 weeks from Monday is Easter Monday so there won't be any appointments on that day so no point ringing on Monday. Very frustrating!!!

Finally had my interview today - had to go to Leicester. The lady was very casual and asked questions that were easy enough to answer. They do ask a few random questions but it'sall just to put you at ease and also get an idea of your truth telling.

Finally my immigration journey is over - good luck to everyone still waiting!
