"Our Sat Nav (BINATONE) dont buy a (BINATONE) .... it has not taken us to the right place in the 2 years we have had it ... it was an xmas present off the inlaws and will not be accompanying us to Canada... its going to BINLAND "


Anyways after not drinking coffee for 24 hours and just water (LOTS) and Oj i was cold turkey'n LOTS ...

We parked at the med centre and walked down to the town 5 mins walk to some good shops and some good places to eat for future note!!

Me and daughter decided we needed the Loo at this point and goin in the public toilets I had the biggest and longest Pee i have ever had... apparently so did daughter

The medical centre was easy to find once in the town, the staff were nice and the doctor was lovely... well mine and the daughters who went in together was great... Tina went to "Mrs Hitler" with the Baby

The medical was quick we went in around 11.40pm and we were all out at 12.10... all done , paid we might have been quicker but the earlier Loo trip meant me and the daughter could not Pee so we got every possible drink out the car and finished them off... took us half an hour to be able to provide a sample

Back in the car ready to drive half hour to Manchester City Centre for the Xray part..... oh no i thought....

Was a straight run from the med centre to Deansgate and also easy to find. Staff there were also friendly and the process of our 3 xrays over in around half an hour.... paid extra for making sure they went recorded delivery.

So family of four Myself,wife 13 year old daughter and baby cost
£640.... not bad when compared with Liverpool which verged on £900

I would recommend this med centre for anyone from the Northwest or further afield if need be!!

Thanx for all the well wishes.... Roll on next stage!

Gaz
Thank you very much for sharing your ME experience!

Almost there! Best of luck

Cheers Gaz, but haven't made the big move yet. House is going on the market at the end of the week, with a view to the big move in august. Fingers crossed the exchange rate picks up a bit by then!!

Cheers

My sentiments exactly - our house is just going on the market. Fingers crossed for a good sale and the exchange rate to work in our favour.

After a loner than usual wait,we finally got our LMO (2 year) through this morning. (big sigh of relief!)
Now if we could just get a house buyer, we could be off. We are almost there but still too cautious to be too enthusiastic......Pride can come before a fall ( and usually to us bump bump oops!) Relying on everyone to sent good vibes for our potential buyer..... I note there is not a 'pleading and slightly desperate' emoticon specifically for the house sellers to use

Maybe not... this slow down might come with the changes in April

I have read different figures than those quoted on that article...

After April they will have to call it "The Not So Fast Fastrack Immigration Route"

Hi Gaz

Do you think that this will affect our applications, being at the stage we're at?
