|Hi to all,
It seems ages that we have been trying to get there, in fact it is 3 years, cant believe it. When we started I never would have thought it would take so long, but it has flown by. I remember when the fist set of forms came through the post, and I thought I am never going to be able to complete this. But I thought , i cant give up at the first hurdle and here we are about to book one way flights. I reckon we will be there about the 17th March. We have finally exchanged on our house, it has taken since June 08 to sell it, its a good house really.
ours is a typical story of falling out with family, just because we decided to improve ours and our kids lives. I would never stand in anyones way if they chose the best thing for them was to move away.We have been through the mil abit lately, our daughter(18) has changed her mind about coming so many times, but now she is coming with us and I genuinely believe she is doing the right thing, even if she only stays for a year or so. I for one cant wait to get to Australia and I hope it fullfills all of our dreams.

|Just wanted to say the best to all of you. I know how you feel with falling out with family as I'm in the same boat myself. Because my Mum and Dad did the move to Oz 50 years ago (twice) and lost a lot of money through going back and forward, my Mum in particular thinks the same will happen to me and is very negative about the whole move. This is turn has made my life hell and all the more stressful while my Dad thinks its a wonderful idea and the best move for my kids. Oh the joys.......Kendal||
