    Default Moving along... slowly!!

    Hi all

    Visa is currently being processed (I hope- they were quick off the mark to take the money so am hoping they are doing something to the form too!!!).

    Hubby and son have a shiny new kiwi passport now!

    Just trying to get the house ready to go on the market- bit worried about getting it sold as the house market has fallen off its wheels here!!!

    Soooooo, all seems set for a big move towards end of Oct... Can't work out if that is too soon or too far away!!!

    All exciting tho!

    Default Visaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

    Hi all

    Visa was approved today!!! And had the moving guy round to measure up (did sit down in a dark room after he told us the price!). House goes on the market in 2 weeks so running round doing big tidying jobs- still really not sure how it's going to pan out selling wise... BUT, sold the business for mid Oct, so will have to move then to earn some $!!!

    Fingers crossed the housing market picks up tomorrow!!! (wishful thinking). God luck to all those trying to sell too...

    Congratulations on getting your PR. That's one important thing out of the way. You'll probably need all the time between now and October just to sort yourselves out and prepare for the big move. Time will fly.

    Good luck with selling the house.
