We spent hours last night scanning in and uploading all the necessary documentation for our online application. Only Form 1221 to go..(by 10pm last night we just couldn't face filling in yet another form asking for the same details!)
After receiving the confirmation e-mail its looking like we'll be processed within 12 months which works for us. I need to get organised! spend extra quality time with my parents who live only about 10 mins away so its going to feel very strange for me not seeing them. They are very supportive of our move to Australia but deep down I know they are sad that we have decided to emigrate, they are going to miss Samuel & Jack terribly and i feel pangs of guilt taking them away from them but hopefully they will come out and visit us and we are able to get back regulary to see them. With Skype at least the boys can see them and hopefully maintain a close relationship with them.
We haven't even had a 'yes' yet and I'm begining to feel mixed emotions. Guess this is the start of the emotional rollercoaster!
