    Hi Steve

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. Hope you have a great trip over and enjoy your new lift down under. Can you tell me are you doing any stopovers and which airline you are flying with? Obviously I'm starting to look into these things now.

    Anyway hopefully once you are all settled you'll be able to update me on the progess.

     

    Speak to you soon Thanks again Sharon

    Thanks for reply Sue, good luck with your big move i think that is the worry it is like a leap of faith giving up all we have here which i now i'm not happy with or I wouldn't even be considering going to the other side of the world. Anyway hope you have a great journey. ATB Sharon

    3.gifDoesn't it feel good. Enjoy the feeling. Bet you have a smile on your face for a week. ;)

     

    Can anyone let me know if at this point they started to feel ;Oh S**T are we doing the right thing?

     

    No normally the feeling is 'Oh $**T we still have to sell the house' :biglaugh:

     

    Don't worry its a feeling that goes through us all. Wait until you see the sticker in the visa and when you read it you suddenly think 'We are actually going to do this'.:unsure:

    I think it is normal to feel like that as you have put all your energy into getting your visa and when it comes you are like, omg we did it!! I thought this and then thought about the ton of stuff we have to sort before we go. There are two big worries that I have, one is obviously are we doing the right thing, especially with 4 children, I know though that we are doing the right thing, positive attidue!! The second worry that I have is that I already have a job to go to and am sooooo worried about starting as there are going to be soooo many things that are different to here, I am a nurse.

     

    Anyway, congrats on the visa and good luck for the future.

    Hi Sharon,

    Great news for you, wish you a safe journey.

    We have lived in Australia for 2 years, come back to UK for 3 years (homesick) now were going back! Last time and this time thinking ...."s**t am I doing right thing" so if your other half doesnt think your normal I'm definately not all there, ha ha !

    We go in 7 weeks time, see you over there, all the best.

    Hi,

    We just got our visas last week too and it suddenly became very real! We're also trying to sell the house, but we're looking into renting it so that we can get moving.....I don't know about you, but now we've got the visas we just want to get going! Hopefully will be there in time for summer, see you out there! :jiggy:
