Bloody good effort....You lot are soooo lucky.
When i got the call from the agent at 6am in the morning she told me that we had to be through OZ immigration before December 24 2009.
This may not seem a problem to most of you but this chat on the phone was on the 9th September 2009.
So we only had 90 ish days to sort out flights get the stuff in a container leave work and say good buy to everyone we knew.
Believe me the time was even less because the prices went through the roof in December so we flew on the 6th November!!
So just for the record it was about 60 ish days......
My advice is make the most of the time you have its a long way back and might (hope)it will be a while till you see some people again.
Oh sorry when does it sink in...
For us is was the short hop from Manchester to London with BMI and we had to prove to them that we were never coming back to the UK.(to get the 8 suitcases and 4 people on the flight.
Sorry its out of focus our friend was crying historically and shacking.
