We are in the same position. Leaving on 3 November. Sometimes I feel remarkably calm but have more moments where I feel physically sick. Keep thinking of all the stuff that is left to do and wondering if there is enough time to get it done.
We were due to come in June but had some problems which meant we had to change our plans and as everything was already in place but just on hold I think I lulled myself into a false sense of security but it has really crept up on us.
I think that next week I will start on my breakdown!!!!! :)
well, just 22 short days until we start our journey to our new life down under...I can't really explain how I feel about it all....it's almost as if it isn't happening to us at all but someone we know.
Still waiting to hear on OAA.....flight tickets will be here in the next few days...maybe it'll all start to sink in then.
Off down to Bristol to see some of the folks next week...that may well hit it home a little also - we'll see.
We also fly out to Adelaide on 3rd Nov from Manchester via Heathrow and Singapore. Jane's finished work and I finish in two weeks. We're now just waiting to hear about OAA. It's not a big deal if we don't get it but it would make things so much easier. Neither of us has a job lined up although Jane has a couple of interviews this week, one on the phone, the other a video call via Skype.
Ordinarily not having a job lined up would stress me but I just can't wait to get out in the sun and go for a stroll down the beach. All worries seem to have gone out the window and we can’t wait to embrace the Aussie way of life.

We also have no jobs to go to but are staying with a friend when we get there so that takes away some of the worry there. We are hoping to go northern suberbs which is all we know really but will make the final decision once we get there. good luck to Jane with her interviews and to you both for your new life!
Hi Margaret, we're on the 9:15pm to Singapore. You might be able to spot us by the big smiles on our faces though.
