I don't often post on this site but do read almost on a daily basis but had to share our news that today we have received our acknowledgement letter by email that our visa has been granted. :p:p;)
It is brilliant news but like others the reality now hits home that we really are having to leave friends and family behind and move to a country we have never even been too. Despite that we are really excited.
We still have the house to sell. Had an offer last week which was £30K below asking price so that was flatly refused. The housing market definitely seems to have slowed down.
My other big problem is that my mum has been diagnosed with lung cancer since applying for visa and is in the process of having chemo and radiotherapy. Despite this she has been very supportive of our move and is holding on to the wish to come and see us as soon as she can. Still I cant help feeling guilty about leaving her.
