Great to hear how you broke the news to the kids bet it was great. Know what you mean about the 11 yr old my 12 yr old son is the only one out of my three adamant he's not going.
Good luck with house sale keep us posted
We've got our visa too!!!!
We had a phone call today at 9.33am to tell us to send our passports ready for our visa, still can't believe I'm writing this.... I'm always reading everyone elses good news!!! Can't tell our daughters until later, the youngest has gone to a friends for tea (after 2 years of hard work we still have to wait!!!!) Need to tell them both together.
I told my husband, luckily he had a day off work and was at home. I cried, which actually took me by surprise, I think it was seeing all the tension in his face suddenly disappear!
I wasn't sure how I would react,still can't really take it in. We can finally start planning after such a long time and tell people 'YES' we are going!!
My oldest daughter has just come in and I'm dying to tell her, aswell as trying to hide this message from her!!
Hi congratulations enjoy the celebrations!! What a feeling:)

I've just seen that you're based in Bristol as we are too, well we're in between Weston and Bristol in the Chew Valley. We are hoping to get over there in July, when are you planning to go?
