      Hi Andy and Lindsey,

      Welcome to the site. I am Jan a Midwife and my husband is Shane an Insurance loss adjuster plus Oliver 13 and Gabby 9.

      I have only 110 points so having to apply to SA government for sponcorship. Still awaiting my skills assessment to come through. It is now 8 weeks but we have had Christmas in those 8 weeks. How long did ANMC take to send your skills assessment? Are you both intending to work?

      I only qualified September 2005 or I would have had more points for experience. I am hoping it will be easy to find a job both for myself and my husband as doing the sums we will still need a mortgage if we want that house with a pool.

      Hi there Grants

      We have had our tra since August 2005 - long story but it came back within three weeks. I have a friend who went out to Adelaide (midwife) and part of her job interview was do you know anyone who might want a job! I am intending to work agency probably one to two shifts a week (hours I do here). I have been quoted approx $40 + per hour for agency. Andy is the main applicant and will be working fulltime.

      We have done everything on our own - withour agent and found it quite easy so if you need any pointers - do let me know

      There are two lasting bequests that we can hope to give our children - one of those is roots: the other is wings!

      Was hoping to be out there in 5 weeks but our house sale just fell through - back to the drawing board - good luck with the application

      Hi Donna

      What bad news about the house - hopefully you will find another buyer quick. Do you have a worse case scenario plan.

      Thinking of you
