Well would you believe it. Damon has known Mick, a brilliant plumber, for years (about 25+++++). They did their appenticeships together at a local company called Vic Hallams in Langley Mill. We're having our en-suite re-fitted so obviously the man to do was Mick. Damon and Mick were drinking tea, as these trademen do, and Mick slipped into the conversation that it was his last Christmas in England. Guess where they are going..... Perth. They, like us, haven't made it common knowledge until their visas were firmly in their passports. What a fantastic surprise. They(Mick, Maxine and their two children) have to validate by September 2009 and have decided not to do a rekkie. How brave.
This makes us want our visas even more. We haven't heard anything since sending Damon's IELTs result off on 22nd November.
