Thank you all for the support,
The agent has paid the lodgement fees for the 2nd application, but it's not just about the money.
It's the stress of waiting and still not knowing. we were planning on being out there in september, now my son's staying to complete A levels, so I'm having to go alone or not at all.
I knew it would never be easy starting a new life on the other side of the world, but having to go alone is very difficult.
Feel like Cilla from Coronation Street !!!!

kind of wondering if it wasn't meant to be at the moment. I will write and ask for refund and then threaten MARA.
Thanks again!
