Soooooo many tears already

Recommended Posts

Guest chrissy63

Have just broken the news to parents about completion on house and when we hope to fly ;lots of tears on both ends of the phone. Can't believe it already bawling and we've got about 4 weeks till we go.

 

Already agreed no goodbyes at airport

 

Don't think anyone believed we would actually go through with it and i include myself in that at times

I know how you feel chrissy, its certainly a rollacoaster of emotions.

 

No we have also said no goodbyes at the airport too - and we have gone out for some lovely meals, dinner parties but no big party as i couldnt cope with all the tears n guilt trip.

 

Good luck to you all - might see you there - where are you heading

Hi Chrissy

I know exactly what you mean and to be honest it gets worse the nearer your time comes to leave. We leave on Friday (eek) and we've had so many goodbyes that its emotionally and physically exhausting. I am just focusing on getting the plane and getting to Oz and these farewells are all part of getting to that point. Good Luck

Hi, i sort of know where you are coming from on this one. we have just told family our plans to emmigrate and it didn't go down too well. even though we have only just started the skills assessment process we still have a fair way to go. think they are happy for us but it doesn't stop them from thinking its not the right move for us. we are hoping to go to go to victoria as we have family and friends there, aim to go after xmas. not yet got a job but looking frantically on net. my mum emmigrated to spain 3 years ago and the rest of the family live up north so its not like they are round the corner in the UK. going to melbourne in may for 2wks to do a reckie, going to do our very own 'wanted down under'.

can't wait to see what its like and whether oz lives up to our expectations.

Hi all

Thanks everyone for the good wishes. I cna't get on to the forum as much now as there is so mmuch to do. I am getting a tad nervous now but very excited too. I'm dreading tomorrow though as we've got parents coming round to say final goodbyes. We've got the taxi booked for Friday morning and then we're off.

hi you lot, well as i said calm before the storm. We got our visa 2 weeks ago, so i told my mum that night (did have a large glass of wine before hand) and shes not a happy bunny. All through the process my mum has asked nothing and when i told her the visas were here she said to me "well i need to find somebody cause whos gunna look after me when i get old, wish i could run away" My step dad left my mum two years ago so shes worried about being left on her own. The thing is she left me with my dad when she went with my ex step dad, so i dont owe her nothing (i was 6 years old then)

well i got that bit out the way, but then my husband told me hes booked the flights fot the 7th july (got to tell her that now) i know somethings gunna go off:realmad: , its like walking on egg shells at the mo.

Having a big party on the 13th june :wacko:

and i agree no goodbyes at the airports :cry:

c ya

We went out with our friends last night, champagne and all. At the end of the night though we could not say goodbye to each other! It did not feel right, so we decided not too and are calling round to their house night before we go (Monday).

 

It was a really strange feeling and I just couldnt do it! Has anyone else had this were they couldnt say goodbye to someone.

Hi

Wish you all the best - can't believe how quickly you got your visas. Our app went off Jul 07 we didn't get CO until 8 Feb 2008! Now have to get medicals, etc. so probably another 4 months or more before we will know if we are approved.

Did you have the option to fastrack your visa Les?

 

If you are on the skills in demand list then you have an option to go fastrack (6 month process)

Hi Ellie

I think we are on the skills in demand list (OH Electrician). We have used an agency and they didn't tell us this! We now have CO and are booking medicals on Mon 3 March and have sent off for the Police check forms. We have to sell our house which we haven't even put on the market yet so hoping that if we get our visas by July we may have sold by then and are aiming to go before christmas. Where are you going? We are going to Melbourne (state sponsored) but do want to go to Queensland eventually.

Yes you will be with OH being a Electrician. Not sure why agency did not tell you this information, however all should work out for you anyhow with needing to sell the house.

 

We will be living in Queensland, Gold Coast, Upper Coomera, so if you ever want any information when relocating then just drop a PM.

 

Good luck to you and your family

Guest Edinburgh to Sydney

I know how you feel.

 

My husband and i fly out on the 27th April and i cry every day.

 

i am really excited about going but i am going to miss every one so much.

 

my mum made us all have a family easter this weekend as she did not think would ever do it agan. the funny thing is we have never done it in the past !!!

 

we tryed to ban every one from the Airport but they are having none of it, they all want to come and say good by. I think edinburgh airport will be full of our family and friend that day and no one else.

 

 

I think i will probabley cry all the way to sydney, people will think i am the crazy lady on the flight.

 

Fingers crossed it will all be ok.

:sad:

Good luck i hope it gets better
