    Guest Rachel & Jeff

    At last nearly 2 years after starting the visa application we are finally going to be leaving UK next Monday. 10pm Qantas flight from Heathrow.:D

     

    I'm so excited even though I know it's not the best time to be doing this. We are both leaving very secure jobs in the UK and are slighlty concerned how long it will take to get new ones although from reading other posts I'm glad that we're on a permanent visa.:unsure:

     

    My heart is definately winning out over my head on this but having finally managed to sell my house I just couldn't wait any longer.:nah:

     

    Hope to meet some of you soon.

    Hi Rachel,

     

    WOW....i bet you feel like screaming with excitement!!!!

     

    I think certain industries are being affected more than others over here, so I guess if you work in a secure industry you will find jobs no problem! What industry do you both work in?

     

    Congratulations on selling your house.. how did you manage that one, I wish we could have sold ours but we have ending up having to rent it out!

     

    Good luck and have a safe journey, the sunshine is definitely here waiting for you (hope you like it HOT!)

     

    Takecare,

    I know the feeling about the job situation, I am really scared about that, I have enquired about it to agencies but no one is interested untill I finally get there, which for me is a bit late! would rather some kind of feedback from them.

     

    But good luck on the journey ahead. I hope you find work quickly.

    I hope it will be worth the long wait for you. 2 years is a long time to wait for something. Hats off to you guys. At least it should be a little cooler for you on arrival. I would have hated to arrived during the last week and do all the running around in silly heat.

     

    Good luck

    Thanks for the good wishes.

     

    I'm hoping it's cooled off a little or will be a real shock to the system considering how cold it is here this week. I much prefer hot though.

    Don't ever want to scrape the ice off my car again!:arghh:

    Yes we were lucky with the house in the end but it did take 15 months. We just couldn't afford to take the renting option so had to wait however long it took.

     

    Jeff is a welder/boilermaker and I've noticed loads of those on here so hope there are some jobs left.

    I have worked in government all my life (the department that is now on a recruitment drive to cope with rising unemployment):wideeyed:so I know I'll have to do something completely different.

    Best of luck with your final few days in England. Enjoy the flight and then your new life. Plenty of help on this site when you get here too.

    ;)Now take a deep breath and let the fun begin, the past few years will seem like a breeze, the hard work now begins. Dont worry not trying to put you off just be flexible and prepard to (maybe) take a step back to start with . But its all worth it in the end, good luck

    Hi Rachel and Jeff,

     

    We will be in Adelaide for 2 weeks just getting the official stamp on our visa for now.

     

    It would be great to meet up with some people, myself and my wife and our 3 kids.

     

    We have already heard and hope to meet up with a great couple in West Lakes so please also get in touch and meet for a beer if you like too.

     

    We are arriving Feb 15th for 2 weeks.

     

    Take care, and have a great trip over there.

     

    Geoff and Shell + kids.
