Got the letter at last
14 Jun 2009
Such excitement in our household, finally on Friday we had the all important letter from our case officer with the offer of visas, providing we cough up an extortionate amount of money by July 11th. We have asked for an extension as we prepare to raid every piggy bank we have. It seemed an awfully long time coming but in the end I emailed our case officer and asked the question since we had been in limbo for over a month. By return we had the letter so I think my email provided a little nudge that we were still here. We broke open the champagne and I got hopelessly drunk. The excitement didn't end there, our eldest daughter has been over for 3 weeks with her partner who proposed to her on Friday too so it was a double celebration (she did say yes). A quick dash to town followed to find the ring of her dreams before they set off back home today. Next time we see them could well be after we have made the one way trip!
