Great well doen.
We're applying for ours soon; the first week in Septmeber, a few weeks before my hubby is 45.
We did use an agent though and which we are very glad we did.
Cross your fingers for us when we put ours in. Although the agent has said that we should here about acceptance by March 2010...
Happy planning now.x
I am keeping everything crossed for you, we are so excited to have got the SS, that just completes 176 application that is in the system, so the wait is now on for a CO etc, Lets hope yours comes through as quick, we heard back within a month on our SS.
