Default BLUE STICKERS.......WOW

Ok just had to share I know we have had the ok for the past 6 months but theres nothing to describe opening the white envelope with your passports in, and to take your first look at the famous 'blue stickers' wow I want to go right now!

I have read so many threads over the past year or so with others in the same position and would like to say thank you to all of you who have offered advice, support and positive encouragement.

For those who are either starting out or going through the process, keep strong & positive, you will get there in the end.

Thanks Lee Lee

Know how that feels, the finishing post always feels so far away, we were very lucky with the whole process and apart from providing extra information here and there the process was ok, but long with a lot of waiting, nail biting and more waiting.

Altho if you have any questions about anything ask away here, everyone has been so supportive and on several occasions when my nerves couldnt take it anymore and we began to dout why we had started the whole process, we have received some great advice & support.

Hi B,

Thanks for the kind words. Yep, all Hooped out now. been a Long and Expensive experience.

That final Hurdle will soon be jumped over when house is sold, get Blue Stickers and the One Way Tickets. then decide where to end up, find a Job... Feel a Headache coming on... Nurse, more Tablets Please.

So, for some words of Wisdom, for others who have their own Hurdles and Hoops, Stick with it..... we did

Ian.
