Default IT'S STARTED!!! OMG

We checked our EOI status this morning before leaving for work, and we have been selected! Realise there's still a way to go but wow, 125 points and no job offer - it CAN be done!! Just need a cover story to explain away this permanent grin at work, any ideas?

Hi Zoe,

Congrats!

Guessing it's a one horse race as you guys have a job offer. Good news for you is that they process EOI's with job offer first.

Maybe you could be the advance party!

Hi Jules and Ron,
Im not sure about you, but the process seems to have gone on forever already!!! Once I made the decision, I wnated to be out there the next day.

Keep me posted about what is happening at your end, we could possibly give you pointers of what slowed us down on the way. (Apart from my husbands ability to procrastinate!)
