Believe you me we are not to be envied too much. We are going over cowboy style with only just enough money to get us by for 3 months. We don't even know if we will have enough to pay for the WP application, whether we will even get jobs and whether our EOI or ITA will be successful.
We don't have our Police Clearances and haven't even gone for our medicals - not even sure how those are going to go.  :tongue:

But we are taking a huge risk, done tons of research and reading till it has come out of my ears and have our minds set that we WILL make it work.

So please don't envy me - there isn't much to be envied.  :(

Well we are gonna see how it goes in October when we are over there and if the response is very positive then we will apply for our PC so that it will be ready just before we leave again in January. We will do our Medicals in NZ. Everything other than our unabridged marriage certificate (still need to get married  :crazy2: ) is in order.
