I'm such a wimp............. I'm just not brave enough

Good luck you have done the hard bit selling the house.
Hope you get a job offer soon.

I have to say this is the best thing (this website!). It's so nice to know that so many peeps are in the same position...makin the move to the ideal location. Had v v good day today, went to the solicitor to get documents signed etc, had really good chat about plans for Oz, jobs and all that, bless her she didn't charge me! All feels positive, just got to wait til april (cringe- wanna go asap) but like people have said, make the most of the time left here (marmite & weetabix!)

Trying not to show it too much at work but it's not easy!!
As others have said it will be here before you know it! We now have only 4 weeks left and although I can't wait I seriously do not have enough nights and days left to fit everyone in to visit to say bye time goes so quickly, enjoy your last weeks and take pleasure in the small things you'll miss when you don't have them any more.

Hope your time goes really quickly

Hi there - heading to Redcliffe - my mum emigrated in Nov with her new hubby who used to be an australian citizen so we will have somewhere to base ourselves initially until we have a scout around ourselves and suss place out. OH not got job set up but step dad says every day the paper is full of work for sparkies so we will wait til we are there as OH needs to see about licence etc and most employers prefer you to be pr's first.

Yeah, I have been to a leaving barbecue every weekend for the last month. Ans guess what ? Yes another planned for this Saturday.

Had a bonus yesterday also, was supposed to finish on the first but work said I can go on the 31st,.., Sweet.

Tried to hide my happiness, didn't work very well.

Anyway it is Friday at work, not many more to go, hang on in there guys and enjoy !
