Fed up!
17 Oct 2008
I am soooooooooo fed up today i could just chuck it all in and forget all about moving to australia! I am STILL waiting for my TRN, was told on the 23rd september that my nomination was being put forward and that i should receive TRN in next few weeks. I cant believe how long everything is taking, considering i had my first offer from ramsay helth back in begining of JULY!! It is now only 9 weeks until we want to go and 3 weeks until i need to give in my notice at work as i have to give 6 weeks. Our medicals are booked for next Thursday and i really want my TRN so it can be put on the form. I was also sent loads of forms to fill in a couple of weeks ago, as i dont yet have an address in WA i couldnt complete them so was advised to send them back with a letter stating i would complete when i arrive. Now today i have an e-mail requesting i send all the paperwork back as it should have been returned by the 13th October!! I also have an enrollment to attend on the 21st October, how on earth do they expect me to attend to that! I said to David the other day if i didnt have my TRN by the end of this week, then i was going to forget about the whole thing, at the moment i really feel like doing just that! Moan over.... for now!!

why does everything take so long? had my first job offer back in begining of july and nothing since. have emailed them a few times as i was told back in july someone from HR would contact me about visa, contract etc. thats over 2 months ago. we really want to move over by the end of the year as want those 6 weeks before i start work to sort out loads of stuff we know there is to sort out. and we really want to spend christmas in singapore as have found a beautiful hotel thats is really cheap so think may as well do that as we are going that way! today i feel like chucking it all in. i thought by now we would have had at least applied for our visa. i know the 457 doesnt take that long but we only have 3 months left now. is it possible? who knows! got a viewing on saturday, a cash buyer so fingers crossed as still would rather sell than rent the house. at least the sun is shining, good times xx

Audrey, some days i dont care what there is to drink!! red, white, rose, could be bloody green with blue spots for all i care sometimes!! thanks again for support, and from you dave, i know you,ve all been through it and im nothing different but sometimes its hard not to feel sorry for yourself isnt it? getting crap from ex (again) nearly 9 years for goodness sake. makes me more determined to get through it all, have a good weekend all xx

thanks guys for your comments. i dont mean to moan but sometimes you just have to dont you! spent yesterday sorting out alot of stuff so things seem a bit clearer now and what needs to be done and when. once i get my degree certificate next friday at my graduation i can then get all the documents certified and then send off application to NMBWA to get my registration. so thats a start! the weather is lousy here too, doesnt help does it! im always much happier when the sun is shining as i always believe it is my dad smiling down on me from up above! Im still sticking with it all and staying positive!

feeling really fed up at the mo, there just seems so much to do and think about, i spend all my spare time looking up stuff to do with th move. and it all seems down to me cos the visa will be in my name. davids great and works hard and is a dab hand at the ironing/washing/cooking/general looking after kids and house when im at work but when it comes to all the visa stuff its me having to do it all. i just seem to be going round in circles. cant get all my documents certified as i havent yet got my uni degree certificate and now davids birth certificate needs to be translated. dont know if my eldest daughter is coming with us either, she wont say yes or no. my other 2 have said they are not coming and staying with their dad, think hes brainwashed them. they said they will come out one day. the house business is really getting on my nerves now, why did it have to fall though after 7 weeks, its not fair. renting is going to be the only option if it doesnt sell soon and im worried about that. suppose once the ball starts rolling it will all go quick,(thanks sarah, kind of making me feel bit better about it all!) i know its probably natural to be feeling like this as after reading everyone elses blogs for the past 9 months , its a really stressful process for most. but i dont do stress!! i like to be in control but dont think i am! oh well, i,ll plug on and keep going round in those circles and maybe soon i,ll stop after going round 1 and think, hey its all coming together!!
