kids. Still have family in chorley and would be intrested in a north west meet up.
Hi this site is really great, lots of really friendly people. Can't wait till we get out there. Vicks & stu.
hi mummyof2 (welcome!) and aussibound (of 2 too ;))
another mummy of 2 here :D - mine are 3 and 20 months!
we'll post our tra on monday (woheyyyyyy) - took long enough!
and we are with GM too!
good luck with your adventure!
Good luck with the TRA, if it goes like ours you'll have your visa off in about 3 weeks! :) As soon as the TRA was posted Go Matilda had the visa forms sent to us within a week, they arrived while we where on holiday.

Good luck again.

in the uk we've got marina - just the same! quick replies all the way through, and answers to the silliest questions ;)
good to know the visa will follow straight away! lots to do for that unfortunately.
we are getting married in 2 weeks as well
so i'll need a new passport, and the kids need one each (so far they are both added on to mine) - then i need to take an ielts test (i am from austria so apparently my english is not good enough ...) - and i don't know what else will come our way!
so how is 'the waiting' treating you?!?1
Hi Mummyof 2
Your husband has 8 yrs on me to. I went to Albany though not southlands although with that age gap he would have left befor I got their. If your living up near the hospital your probably not for from where my gran lives now, as shes in the bungalows round the back of the hosp no for from the school. Good luck with the escape attempt that bungi rope is hard to escape you might need this.
For tose of you looking for a north west meet the yellow sight is organising one for the 21 july @1300hrs in the Norman Jepson @ Preston. Dead easy to find just of the M6. Really good child freindly pub
Wow - getting married in the middle of all of it. Hope it goes well - post us all some pictures.

GM let us send our visa application off even though Neil needs another passport - Lorraine just said to get the new one certified and passed on as soon as we get it back. Going to do it this week, but who knows how long the passport agency will take to send it back!
:Dyeah i know - the wedding is looming! but we decided on that one before we even considered on moving to oz! that one was a 'from the heart' decision and once done we just went for it iykwim
re ielts i've heard very different things. some say difficult not so many say easy. and looking at the website it seems to be veryyyyy timeconsuming! something like an hour for each part - and i think there is 4 of them (reading, writing, listening, talking)
OH will be happy having the kids to himself all day ;)
yes, i guess we'll be able to send the application off straigt away too (once the tra is done of course) - it's just more money
