Default OMG!!! PR visa's received. Off we go...

After what feels like weeks of stalking the postman, the long awaited PR visas plopped through the letterbox this morning

So..... it's all booked and we leave on Weds 31.12.08 Now rushing round like headless chickens trying to get everything into order for when the taxi arrives on Weds morning.

Good luck to the rest of you waiting for news from CHC.

Loads of Luck minimeeze
They came via ordinary post We sent a self addressed envelope as instructed and they were returned in that. No signing for - nothing!

Yes, we are mad as fruitcakes
We managed to sell our house and all our belongings have been in storage since the end of September. We have literally been living out of suitcases since then at the in laws, so we're relieved to be going. I have already said my goodbyes to my family & friends who all live up north. Just completing last minute paperwork like P85 tax forms and the goods accompanying letter as well as emailing copies of visa to my employer so I can start work on Thursday... no rest for the wicked eh? It'll keep me busy until we go anyway
