    Default ok, so now we are nervous!

    Our house/ business is 19 days from completion. we have sold most of our things, just keeping the precious and irreplacable. we have had our moving quotes (pps, ? 2358, ) not that they were the cheapest, but because they offered us the best overall package.
    Checked out plane tickets. made arrangements to see some of the family before we go.
    We have been waiting on our ltbv for 9 months, ringing nzis regulary.
    we decided that once we had sold our business we would await the outcome in nz.
    Last night we decided to ring nzis again, expecting the usual " you are in a managed queue" but instead we were told you will be assigned your case officer within 5 - 10 working days.
    So now we are on 2 countdowns.
    1 for the moving day.
    2 for the nzis to tell us our fate.
    We have decided that if they turn us down!!!!! we are still going as planned but hubby will have to get a proper job instead.
    So i guess we wont be getting a lot of sleep, and that we will be huggling the telephone at night as we wait for it to give us the news that we so desire.
    Hopefully the case officer will decide before we leave the uk. my we are cutting it fine.
    The stress has at times been unbearable, I've told my husband that I didn't want to play anymore.( ok so I was lying,) we can't wait to get to nz
    it has been a dream for over 12 years. now that we (it was me holding us back)are almost there we are so excited, so scared, butterflies are an understatment.
    But we are doing it, going to be homeless, jobless but finally happy.

    Hi wendie,
    Looks like you are almost there!!! :icon_eek: icon_exclaim.gif :041: :icon_eek: icon_exclaim.gif :041:

    You've done the hard bit, now just 'go with the flow' ... you are going to NZ and things will sort themselves out. :045: No need to stress ... practice being 'laid back' like a true Kiwi. :icon_biggrin:

    sara, I still think you're mad, :icon_biggrin: but I know you are going to have a ball. I expect loads of posts to keep us up to date with where you settle.

    Hi

    We submitted our EOI on Sunday and can not believe we have been selected. I have just checked, I did not bother checking yesterday as I thought the draw was around the 6th/7th for this month so it could have happened yesterday !!!

    We realise its very early days but its still very exciting news.

    Like you Moggy we are not seling our home untill we get the PR - we have 2 small daughters (aged 11 weeks and 3 years) and my husband and myself don't feel confident enough to go without PR with them being so young.

    We still have lots of research to do aswell.

    Best of luck to Sara and Ian and family - 27 days to go !!


    Regards

    Mrs Ruby

    one of our main reasons for waiting is that we want to buy a place a soon as possible after we get there so we can start feeling at home, but we want to buy more that 2 acres of land which is only allowed if you have PR. Don't really want to wait 6 months before having somewhere to call home.
