My car went today :(

 

We are now down to one car but with less than two weeks before we leave we should cope. (And the money from the sale goes into the pot to transfer to Oz dollars).


Wedding 06/04/2013, 820 visa applied 30/04/2013 and granted 02/05/2013 - 2 days!

​300 PMV sent for partner (futureinoz) on 15/05/2012. Case officer assigned (LG) on the 17/05/2012. Medicals done 07/06/2012. Have been told 5-6 months. PMV granted 17/10/2012 :jiggy:

Okay so I'm a little slow off the mark but sent off my papers (last week) to be checked by the Oz OT Council.

Hopefully (no obvious reasons against) I should be able to apply for registration.

As soon as that hurdle is passed I can begin my visa application (looking at State sponsored to get work in Hospital fingers crossed)

 

Fingers crossed things go smoothly and I'll be bathing in the Oz sunshine soon :biggrin:

I locked the wife outside in the freezing cold, it was Brassick and she was shouting at me to let her in and I said NO' she said she was gonna smash me face in when she got back in, but I still wouldn't let her in, she said, almost whimpering with the cold, WHYyyyyyyy? I said it will make you want to go to sunny hot Australia more.

 

 

Are steaks really good for black eyes?

Brassick - what has her being skint to do with it?


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Ok, so technically not today, but last week was a big one:

Accepted the job offer

Started the residence visa reinstatement process

Sat the IELTS just in case #2 doesn't work

 

I feel we are a few steps closer!

Well suitcases packed. We can only take 20kg each as I am a dual national and my partner on a PMV, but I have packed out my 7kg carry-on, and my laptop bag and my big handbag. (We are not flying out for another week but need to sort what needs to go with the shipping.)

 

We have each packed another big suitcase which we will send air cargo. (We are also sending a few other necessary bits and pieces together with the cat gear as they will get out of quarantine before the shipping arrives). The rest of our clothes and shoes are being shipped (we have packed 4 more large suitcases and 6 large bags and that is just clothes!). White and Co will be here tomorrow to pack for the container, so have also been busy cleaning boots, bikes and garden tools until they are thoroughly clean. Still have to do the dyson Hoover and the tumble dryer but they are currently in use. :arghh:

 

I'm sure we will get there. :skeptical:
