    Hello everyone,

     

    I'm sure I know loads of you from other places. :v_SPIN:

     

    We're a family of 3 hoping to move to Adelaide in Feb / March of 2009. Visa was granted in september and we are hoping to tie up our house sale this week.

     

    (That makes it all sound so simple.....:arghh:)

    Is that you or Limahl on the photo??

    Welcome and lucky you having your visa.

     

    Hello and thanks. It was a huge relief getting the visa - it took us about 18 months of hard work.

     

    No, it's Andy Warhol in the picture. I think that might give my age away as he was about 20 years before Limahl - although I do know who he is too. LOL :biglaugh:

    Thanks Mandy. I did join about a year ago but had problems with it loading on my pc. Got a new pc and it seems to load OK now. LOL. I was nagged into it by Mozzy - who I know form a few other forums. (I am also spending too much time on the PC and was trying not to get addicted to another one. LOL)

     

    Oh yes the 'tying up the house sale' It's bloomin stressful. We are trying to exchange this week after months of delays and it is driving us mad. Still can't complain when so many other people can't sell. Well, actually I can complain... lol Well done on selling yours.:notworthy:

    Thanks Mandy. The visa thing is a bit of a lottery. Ours took 8 months and 10 days - we applied in the first week of Jan 2008. I have heard of other people with job offers who have uploaded copies of their job offers and their flight tickets and have then kept on ringing / emailing the Diac to tell them that they were due to arrive and needed the visa. This has seemed to work.

     

    Just heard that our exchange is off until next week. It is driving me mad all this waiting too. Just want to move on with our lives. :arghh:

    The house market is a nightmare. We are leaving 2 rental properties behind but were lucky enough to give our house away, sorry I mean sell for a bargain price. We couldn't afford to go if it wasn't sold.

     

    We should be arriving about the same time as you. YAY!

    Sorry about your sale. We had 3 fall through. So I know how you feel. :sad: Good on you for carrying on. The rental market is good at the moment so you should be in a good position.

     

    We were thinking of driving from Sydney too. I have family there and they could help us buy a car etc (except of course we would have to do the whole registering thing twice.:arghh:)
