[QUOTE=Fly Away;6781924]:

Over time, people will either disappear or graduate to the Barbie, so this thread will gradually fall out of use too.

I suspect that I may have a long time subscription to this thread.
Being a paperbased 475 Marchie I now expect a while to go before even getting a CO.
Knowing that there may still be a bit of a wait to go doesn't make it any easier though.

I have 4 and I've traveled with them domestically alone and those kinds of stories are typical.
Now add in the fact that there's immigration rules to follow, a new country, on the move with no permanent place to live, etc and things can really get hairy!

Hang in there, keep the sense of humor, and it will get better!!
your so right I had visions of that happening as well I was hoping he would fall asleep and wake up feeling better luckily for us he did as the thoughts of him getting sick and may be not being allowed fly were at the back of our minds we would have coped with that if it happened though im glad we can luck back and see the funny side now


Thanks Tina we are enjoying the new baby she is so good

Hi

Good idea, nice to catch up with some other familiar names from BE.

We have now been in Oz for over 2 months, the UK seems a very long time ago now (which is good and bad). Children very settled in to new school, nice rental, hubby found work easily.

Good luck to everyone, whether you're still waiting or about to leave the UK

Hi Niamh,

How are you? Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. How are you finding Oz and the Sunshine Coast. We are rethinking the Sunshine Coast now We got our visa in July and will be over no later than April of next year. God, we can't wait. The thoughts of spending another winter here in Ireland make us want to cry

Helena

Hi everyone
Not been on BE for a while. Good idea this thread I can find everyone in one place.
We were Sept 07 paperbased and got our visa on the 18th Aug 08.
Got visas in passports and booked flights for 29th Nov and have a rental for 6 weeks in Brisbane , Bulimba.
Since we got our visas we went to Italy to say goodbye to my sister and her family who live out there. I have been in hospital for an operation for my slipped disc so trying to get fit for the 24hr flight!
I think drinking a bottle of vodka will help me along!
In the middle of sorting out the container and book my son into school as we want to go to Redcliffe so have to wait to we get in the area, but apart from that every thing on course.
Handing my notice in tomorrow at work as im still off sick but no point going back

Have no house to sell as I have always rented, but want to wish everyone all the best with selling their houses. This time last year we was all wishing every one luck for their visas !
Maybe someone might start a thread saying " WE SOLD IT "
good luck every one with what they are doing and keep
