Thanks for you replies, sorry we haven't responded sooner, but to be honest, we haven't had much time to check our messages.
Your advice and kind words have been really appreciated and have definitely helped. Just knowing that other people have been there and done that, and come through the other side happier and pleased with their decision to move to Oz reassures us.
We received notification last week that our VETASSESS has been passed, so that's one hurdle cleared!
Richard, Sarah, Phoebe, and Ollie
