New to the site but have been looking at it for over a year now for guidance and inspiration. We started the process back in October having lived in Australia back in 2006/7. Missed the July 1st deadline but have reapplied so waiting for the SS to come back positively but have been told of at least an 8 week wait! However, that didn't deter us and we are currently having a 4 week holiday in Australia. Just returned to our base with family in Sydney after our Reccie in Adelaide, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Loved the whole atmosphere there and managed to meet with some employers as regards job prospects. So we'll just have to wait and see - 5 weeks of waiting and counting!
