6 year journey is over ... Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi

Thanks to one and all of you over the years for the great little tidbits of advice one gets off this form ... we managed to do this all without an agent pretty much because of this forum and learning the little tips & tricks required to complete successful applications .... others can take heart also, that it's not an impossible journey and if you take the time to prepare all is not lost

Waiting for decisions is the worst part, but if you have done all the hard work in preparing your applications, you don't need to fear and continue to live life to the fullest and one day you'll get a happy surprise in an e-mail

If you stress about its too much, your life will become miserable

Interesting thing I picked up last night was that our council forced new citizens to signup on the electoral role and wouldn't let them into the main hall without enrolling first
