Just Saying HELLO

    Recommended Posts

    This is my first post don’t know what to say.............

     

    HELLO.

     

    My name is Andrew my Wife is Zoë and I have two boys Adam 8 years and Alex 6 years I Live in Melling in Liverpool, and have been following this web site for many months, and thought it was time to take the plunge and introduce myself & family.

     

    We started our Visa application last year did all skills assessments first then finally applied for 175 at the start of March 2008. Pre loaded medicals and police checks in June/July. And then the wait began.

     

    My wife has been offered a job at flinders medical center, but I shall wait till I arrive for employment, I am currently store Manager for Levis Strauss Jeans so will hopefully be able to get work as management within retail.

     

    I always look at this site and feel how people are always so supportive and willing to help when they can, the move for us is driven by a better quality of life for my family, and hopefully Adelaide can bring this.

     

    As you are all aware the UK economy is under massive strain and myself and other are finding it so difficult to sell are property, if only we had sold it last year!!!!

     

    Anyway this should do for now, and I am no longer a stranger looking in. :unsure:

     

    Take care

    Hello and Welcome.

    Its great news that your wife has a job waiting for her. We all understand about the houses situation and its frustations. maybe the governments one year no stamp duty under £175,000 might entice a buyer for you, effective from tomorrow!

    Hello Andrew, Zoe, Adam and Alex. Don't know if it would have helped putting the house on the market last year. Ours has been on over a year and still not sold. We are now renting. This is a great forum for advise and friends. Just have to be brave and make the effort to meet even although it is a bit scarry. Good luck with everything.

    Hi Andy, Zoe & Family

     

    This site is perfect. I have asked many questions and there have been so many people here in UK and in Oz willing to help. I don't think I could continue with the application without it. Everytime I have doubts, this forum just makes me keep going and I can't thank everyone enough :)

     

    Good luck with everything and keep us posted

    Hi Andy, Zoe and family; and all on the forum....

    Gosh, Liverpool is gonna be empty:shocked:.

     

    We have sold our house, moving on the 8th nov; but not yet got the visa.

    Like you, my OH is going to be "at home" in Adelaide; just until the fascination of golf wears off, then he is soooo getting a job!

    Anyway, good luck with the move!

     

    Jane, Andrew and Family
