Okay, taking deep breaths.....
We have exchanged on the house today, crew booked to pack the house for 21st, 22nd and 23rd Sept. Container to load 23rd Sept.
Complete on house 25th Sept..... gosh that was a mouthful.....
Were still waiting for our visa's to come. Feeling very scared that the visa won't come. It's taken ages and ages. We have been told to expect a approx max 4 week wait for them to arrive... That will take us right up to our completion date, just hope they come real soon.
I've got to go and pick up my mum from airport this evening, and she is going to go spare that we have exchanged without our visa's coming though.
I just don't understand why family keep putting the guilt trip on us. I really feel numb to it all.
I just can't wait to come over, and start living properly. One of the major reasons for us coming is that we have an opportunity for me to become a stay at home mum. I have always worked full time and it's only now that I realize how much I have missed out. I stopped work in June this year, and I have so enjoyed being with the kids and having some proper time with OH. Why should we feel guilty about making something better for us?
Our family have not supported us what so ever with the kids, even on holidays we have always paid someone to look after the kids whilst we go out and earn a crust. It just makes me feel really bitter and very angry. We have one set of parents who don't work, and never offer to look after the kids, and the other my mum who works full time, but will always make excuse after excuse after excuse. So I ask myself why should I be upset to leave when i'm not. Our family never gave is a reason to stay. I have to do whats right by my kids and OH of course, we can't miss him out bless him, he is the reason that this is all possible. I knew there was a good reason why I wanted to marry him all those years ago.. he he he he
I got to keep thinking that if we don't do this, we will always have the what if question later on in life. Even if we come and it doesn't work out, at least we tried.
We always get told by family that Adelaide is so far, we won't be able to make the journey. It kinda gets me thinking if you really wanted to come and visit us you would make the effort. But just be honest and say that you can't be bothered.
I'm so so sorry about the long draft, but really were so looking forward to coming.
You'll all probably hear me screaming with joy of course when the visa comes though.
