Really pleased for you.

Hoorah Britbird !!

Blimey - I've been reading your threads lately, tutting, and thinking "poor old Britbird" I'm sure there were times when you were going really bonkers with it all (I know we are, and we've only been waiting 9 months so far!)

We're really, really pleased for you - and seeing as we're off to Aus for a research trip this Saturday, I'll have a little stop in Brisbane and send it your love - let it know you won't be too long!!

YIPEEEEEEEE again!!

Cheers

Lisa B and family

Well Done Britbird!!!!!!!! It feels great doesn't it!!! We'll be in Brissie in a
couple of years, so we'll hunt you down and bring you some british wine to remind you
of what you're not missing : )

I plan on videoing a traffic jam on a fould wet day to play whenever I get
nostalgic for home.

Hi Miranda, Mick, Alice and Whizzy,

We are so pleased and relieved that the wait is finally over for you and can't wait until we are all out there having that barbie. We'll bring the prawns and the tinnies!!!!

We will all hopefully be getting there just in time for the Ozzie summer, so we can bake together (slip slap slop of course) on those beaches whilst watching those very nice bronzed lifeguards!!!!!

Anyhow all our love and will speak to you soon. We will meet up again before we go.

Its hard to believe that what we have waited for for so long is finally going to happen. Hang in their folks who are still waiting it will happen.

love

Susan, Colin and Emma XX

Only just seen your message.

Thats great news as I know you have waited so long for it.

Recieved the visa last weekend and planning to be in Brissie in August. Keep on posting in Oz and we can have that barbie.

Hope to meet you there soon.
