    hello

     

    I haven't joined a forum before but have decided to jump in.

     

    I have found the site really helpful and useful during the long wait.

     

    My husband is a secondary school teacher and I am a secretary. We have 2 children 9 and 11. We live in Norfolk.

     

    We have waited so long now for our temporary visa that we have almost given up all hope. Maybe good things are worth waiting for!

    Nice to have you around. For someone that hasn't done this before you seem to have sussed the signature thing out. :)

     

    Good luck with the visa and keep us updated.

    You're just in front of us in submitting your application, we're on a 495 too... yes, the wait is very trying, I have my empathy... that's the good thing about this site, seeing that you are alone!

    Welcome. We had to wait over 3 years for ours - I taught only 3 days a week and the hours weren't enough so had to go full time for a year.

    It will be worth it. We love it here.

    Where are you from in Norfolk - we spent many happy holidays in Holt,Holkham etc - it really is beautiful there.

    Thanks for all messages, it's nice to know we're not alone even though the wait is excruciating. Living in limbo is really hard.

     

    In response to Nick11, we live just south of Norwich and have enjoyed some lovely days at Holkham too but it is usually absolutely freezing and the kids just want to get into the teashop!

     

    We are so looking forward to the nice beaches and sunny weather in Adelaide! I have lit the fire this afternoon because it is so icy here.

     

    Good luck to everyone, we'll all get there in the end, here's to a bbq on the beach without 2 fleeces on!
