.....with a phone call from our agent to say that our visa has been granted!!! Hubby is away til next week so can't really celebrate until then - or maybe I should start and then finish when he gets back?! I had a call yesterday from our letting agents to give us two months notice on our rental so we need to be out early July - but we're not leaving for Oz until end Aug....so will be nomads for 6 weeks or so!!!! I don't know if this is a record but our meds were sent to LCU (with DHL) on 16 April, arrived 19 April, visa granted 1 May...less than 2 weeks!!! (Sorry Lisa I know this isn't going to help you at all!) Now the fun starts....packing, booking flights, more packing, getting kids to throw away stuff.... There is nothing like this feeling is there? Lisa x

Anyway good luck with it all adn clearing the kids stuff....I'm dreading that bit as soooo much kids toys! You'll be okay for the 6 weeks as nomads knowing you're off to Perth! Fran x

Definately! I'm not that sentimental about my stuff but hard to throw Em and Sam's stuff.Luckily I've a niece close by who'll be getting alot of stuff like it or not!!!!!!!! There's a big mamas and papas rocking horse though that is in garage as too big for my house and dithering about taking that.Decisions,decisions!?!!!!!!! Hubby just shouted.No way that's coming he he. Fran x

I think it only gets worse the older the get. My two are 12 & 10 and seem to want to keep the stuff they've had since they were 5!! Unfortunately nephews & nieces are all the same age or older! Maybe the godchildren though..... I'd have to say I'd find it tempting to take the rocking horse though, my daughter seems to think that she can have a real one when we move out there!! I don't think so!! Lisa x
