My furniture and dog are going to be in OZ without us! You just have to keep thinking positive and each day hope you have an e-mail. Good luckJules
Hi Jules, well im sorry that you are in the same situation too, although i was kind of hoping that there would be others like me too, you know, to make me feel a bit better!!!LOL

Well i suppose you just have to laugh about it really, its just that when family or friends bring it up daily, it really gets to you again! To also top it off though, is that back in august we noticed that the doller went to 2.57, but as we had only just put house on market, and had only just started to look at currency exchange, we were a little slow about it. When it started to decline, we thought, oh well, we've got ages yet anyway and its bound to get to that again, but little did we know it would fall to an all time low, and its set to become as low as 1.9 in 2008!!:curse: Im constantly checking that everyday now, we will be happy for around 2.4, it is slowly on the way up at the mo, it could go up a little more due to xmas spending, so we are going to wait a little longer. Fingers crossed it doesnt go down dramatically and we miss it!!

Oh well maybe we will hear soon. We've sent off pcc but am waiting for the co before doing meds.

same as us, there are five of us for medicals and we don't want to shell out for meds if we get turned down at co stage for some reason. I hate to say it but it is good to know other people are in same boat as us and waiting the same. After a while you become a bit obsessed thinking it's just you so good to know others are still waiting. I used to think it was coz we put on visa app. that we wont be moving till June 08 but others have co who are moving similar time so not that.Its hard not to worry but not much else you can do. I think this is the worst waiting bit.Lets hope we hear this week or soon any way( tomorrow morning would be good!!!!).All best to all waiting,Babs

Hi y'all. We have our meds booked for next Monday (we waited because we didn't want our 138 to complete before Jan 08), and we will then get our police checks once we move out on 30 Nov (to rented). Cos we have kids we also don't intend moving until Jul/Aug 08. I know it is a gamble but at least we'll have the money from the house sale if it all goes wrong, and the rest just gets stuck back into another property

We're one of a few who have applied for a 138, and as these seem to take longer we aren't too stressed at the mo (about moving in a week yes, but not about the visa, just yet).

Good luck to our fellow junies who are still waiting patiently for a co, and I hope they all come soon

Rich

I really hope you're right Jules! Can't concentrate on anything this wait completely over rules your life. Even down to what presents to buy the kids for xmas I'm assessing whether they can be shipped or flown to Oz!!!
