Well the last stage of our journey was achieved yesterday as the whole family passed the Citizenship test. After lots of study it was a relief to get it over and done with. The guys/ladies at the Immigration office were lovely and made us as relaxed as possible before taking our test. Just got to wait for the ceremony which could well be on Australia Day which will be good.
So I would just like to say good luck to all you newbies, don't give up there is light at the end of the tunnel.
