Thumbs up Delayed reaction

The postman has just brought our passports with our visas in. I am now sitting here in floods of tears, whooping, jumping up and down, sobbing, the lot. This is has been a long time coming. I was just so shocked and spaced out when we got our "Got It" email. Now it is real, we can go I think until we had those visas in our passports I hadn't let myself believe it could be true and still kept waiting for something to go wrong.

I'm just so HAPPY, I can't stop crying and no-one else is in to share it with.

Waiting for what? To sell the house, yes. As soon as we do, we are off.
