    Default we've got pr too!!

    woohoo!!

    passports are with the little blue sticker team at this very moment..

    they''ve said it is taking approximately 2 weeks to issue the blue sticker..
    the flights are booked for 3 weeks today so we may be cutting it fine..

    anyway, HUGE thanks to everybody, apologies for being a miserable git every now and again...

    9 days left to work..
    a week off..
    then nothing but a 36 hour flight, 2 kdis and 2 hours in LAX trasnit lounge to encounter.

    Can't bloody wait.. [smiley=icon_biggrin.gif]

    i know exactly how you feel mate..

    I used to think exact;y the same when it was happening to everybody else.
    Just think though..
    if it all goes tits up for me, we could be back here and even more miserbale than we are here now ,by the time you get there,,,

    you'll be there..
    and as we're off to an area (nearly) that you fancy, then any help or anything you need, let me know..

    Excellent news nattydread - no apologies necessary for being a miserable git, everyone understands the frustration involved in the dream!

    Best of luck to you and your family [smilie=Thumbs_up.gif]

    Perhaps we could get together for a few stubbies if you're passing....... [smilie=Drunks.gif]

    I dunno. My phone line gets cuts off and I lose the Internet connection for 18 hours and look what happens.

    Well done, Nattydread. It's all come together at last. What are you doing at the other end i.e. travelling first, renting a place or looking for something to buy? Perhaps you've already posted this info and I've missed it (or forgotten it - my age, you know [smiley=icon_redface.gif] [smiley=icon_biggrin.gif] )

    Don't just disappear in a blur of packing like Skybluearmy. Let us know how you're getting on and how you're feeling. Nice to share in someone else's excitement.

    Sorry, Stevey. You'll get there when the time is right. I know it's no consolation.

    mb,

    we're in an uber fortunate situation where sylvie's new employers are sorting us out with our accomodation for a month and a car too..
    so we're flying in to welly, and then going straight to masterton, and we'll have 10 days or so to play around until she starts her job.

    I need to find a job too in that time, but I'm sure something will come up.

    thanks all for you kind wishes,,

    not much happening now for a week or two so I won't be disappearing into a
    blur of packing..

    Welshgirl,
    we won't be passing by I'm afraid, but..
    if a stubbie means a beer, then I'll make a point of passing by..
    I was looking at a car up your way actually...

    thanks again folks....

    Natty, if you're going to drink in this country, you need to learn the lingo!!

    So here it is, for interests sake....

    Stubby = Small bottle of beer
    Handle = Pint, although not quite a pint (comes in a glass with a handle!)
    Glass = Half pint

    I believe measures here are in litres rather than pints.

    And if you've got 10 days of playtime, then you best get your bum up this way!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    I know where there's a nice Mk1 Escort Mexico going for a fair price.[smiley=icon_mrgreen.gif]


    Great that everything looks plain sailing, Nattydread. At least you're having a sound start to your new life.
