Its says it all in the title really.
After a few hurdles along they way, like husbands job going to special measures amd having to wait for the new systems in July, I openend our email to this from our agent .......
'Hi Emma and Steve, Congratulations you are now Australian Permanent Residents!'
Whats the first thing i did??.... Burst into tears LOL!
When our CO was issued on 5th Nov i never thought it would be this quick and here we are with the visa, that sometimes i thought we'd never get.
So to all of you at the start, middle or end of your journey .....All the ups & downs are sooo worth it, for that 1 second where you read that 1 line over and over again, through blurry eyes!
Now the hard work begins, where to live, schools (2 boys 6&8 who want to leave tomorrow) healthcare, removals and rentals and telling my family & friends we are going (i think they dont believe us!!)
I'll be spending all me life on here getting ideas!
Good luck everyone.
Emma, Steve, Owen & Matt xx
