    Hi all

     

    Thought I would share our good news with you - we got word from our agent this morning that our 176 Visa was granted (yippee). Once I was able to talk I phoned my OH to share the good news with him and he thought I was playing an April fool on him!

     

    I have spent the day going from crying, to laughing to crying again. We have put the Champagne in the fridge to celebrate tonight.

     

    We only done our medicals on the 7th March so hopefully folks who are still waiting will hear back soon – good luck!

    Hello there!!! :o

    Congrats Standalofts family!!! bet you are all of a dither ha ha ha... Visa's were proccessed quickly after your Meds eh!! we had our Meds (Edinburgh) 25th March ... We still need to sell our house, as soon as our Visa's come through we will be making plans to move to Adelaide asap... thought we had sold our house last month, turned out to be family of chancers (offered us £60,000 UNDER our fixed price!! GRRrr)... good luck with your plans to make the big move!! I think the tears/laughter/confusion is all very normal eh? I have many many tearful days and we haven't left yet!! we have two grown up daughters who live away from home.... a 12 yr old daughter keeps saying she doesn't want to move... and our beautiful precious 3 yr Grandaughter (God knows how I will cope saying goodbye to my little Grandaughter...).... Of course I realise our kids fly the nest and we have to live for our own little family unit now, which is just our 12 yr old..... BUT ITS HARD and pulls your emotions all over the place!!! .......... Being very positive, hopefully the others will follow us over to Adelaide one day!!

    Anyhow Standalofts, hope you enjoyed that bottle of bubbly!! well done you guys!!

    Cheerio and have a good weekend!

    Hi Graham & Janis

     

    Isn’t it such an emotional rollercoaster! My family have known since day one about us applying but I think it’s suddenly real for them now. We only told Jimmy’s mum today as she has dementia and she was really positive for us and said she thought we were doing the right thing which was lovely to hear. We have 2 flats to sell, we put the smaller one on the market at the start of the month and will put the one we are living in on the market in the next week or so, really apprehensive about selling up as our market here is really slow, we desperately hope they will sell quickly but have no control over it.

     

    Will keep our fingers crossed that you get everything completed very soon and you get your house sold.

     

    Lesley & Jimmy

    Congratulations!!! wonderful news

     

    We know exactly how you feel cos we got ours too and my head is still spinning. I kinda can't believe it. Keep checking the agents email lol!

     

    Like you we need to sell up in a very poor market!

     

    Best of luck with the next bit of your journey. Hopefully we will see you in Oz!
