Smile Hark.....is that the sound of Champagne a-popping?

Hi all,
Well, we got the long awaited email today and have been granted our PR visa. The flight is booked and we depart France on the 14th November - starting work about a week or so after in NZ. Our 5 pets leave a couple of days before.

Its been a long journey with lots of ups and a few downs along the way but we got there in the end. A huge vote of thanks to all who gave their time to answer my questions and hopefully those of you waiting for your visas - you'll get there in the end.

Now the work really begins!
