Yep, full of adrenaline, also a few tears everytime I look at my 'kids'.
Won't be there for Xmas, have to fit it in around son's exams in January, he's coming out to validate visa and then returning home. This will be my 3rd 'last Xmas at home!!'
I've got the 495 visa - eventually!
Can any recommend somewhere to stay for a few weeks ( holiday accomadation perhaps, I'm travelling light!) Once my son comes back I'm thinking of looking into renting a room somewhere.
I thought it would be cheaper and provide some company- by that I really mean someone to kill the spiders Good idea or not??
Off to start packing!
It feels weird at the moment, I'm surrounded by empty boxes but just feel a kind of blind panic and can't get anything done!
won't be out for christmas, will be there early January. Going to look for holiday type accommdation for 2 weeks while son's with me, then look to rent a room somewhere.
Less expensive with someone to deal with spiders
Good / bad idea??
It's a 495 visa. The special one with a nearly 3 year wait can't say I'd reccomend that particular immigration agent to anyone other than my worst enemy!!
No doubt I'll be back with lads more questions once the panic thaws!!
Well done it must be a lovely feeling that your have done it!!!!
i wish you good luck for your new start
well done dotty.
Why you have to be there so quick.
Well whatever the reasons, hope it all goes well. Maybe see you over there.
well done guys on getting your visa, enjoy your new life in Oz;)

I have to be there that quick because immigration agents messed up and applied for wrong visa & had to go through it all again. Jan 16th is 12 months from time of meds, so have to be there before they expire.
Seeing the price of flights and having slim chance of OAA this short notice, I am still angry with them.
Good job I like a challenge!!
At least this way there's no time to change my mind!!
