EMMA: Introducing me and my family

Hi

I'm a 30 something year old, my husband a tad bit older and we have two young girls. We have handed in our application in November 2006 (skilled independent) and are now awaiting further instructions from the powers that be in Aus.

We live in Middelburg, wonderful town, booming with new houses and businesses, but although we were very reluctant at first to commit to this process, we have decided that we will have to do it for us and the kiddies. Very sad, but life is not always easy and we sometimes have to make difficult decisions.

But anyway - here we are.

Hi Emma

Congratulations with your decision, I trust a wonderful life awaits you in Oz! We have been here nearly 10 years and have never looked back!

We came from Witbank, how close could you get! I am, of course, presuming that your Middelburg is Tvl and not the Cape? Any idea yet where in Australia you are planning to settle?

WELCOME!!

Hope you enjoy your stay with us and now it's a waiting game for the visa.

This site is a great place for support & advice from people that have gone through the same.

Thank you everyone for the welcome.

Mara - hubby have very specialist job - not a lot of work available - so don't think we will be able to choose. As long as it is a smallish town with little or no traffic jams - I'm okay. Kids are no way near school going age - so that doesn't weigh heavily either.

But we take each day as it comes - a lot of hurdles to pass.

Regards

Welcome Emma!

There are a lot of hurdles, you right, but they serve us by giving us time to complete the emotional transition so that when the visas are approved, you are excited and able to veiew them as the valuable gift that they are :rolleyes:

Good luck and stick around on the forum - you'll meet up with plenty like-minded people here!

Cheers

Hi Emma!

Baie welkom by die forum en sterkte met die proses. Julle is nie alleen nie. :rolleyes:

Ons het ook in Middelburg gebly. My man het 5 jaar by Columbus gewerk en ek het 'n jaar en 'n half daar gewerk.

Ons is nou so 2 jaar in Randburg en moes gou aanpas na ons rustige lewe in Middelburg.

Dit was so lekker om elke middag vroeg by die huis te wees en te gaan fietsry.

Maar ons is albei nog jonk en wou meer ondervinding kry in die stad.

Middelburg is die ideale plek om kinders groot te maak! :angry:

Ons Skills assessment is nou gedoen en ons is nou besig om al die forms in te vul om ons applicaton te lodge.

Ons gebruik 'n agent net om seker te maak ons mis nie iets nie.

Groete

Anine

Hi, Emma

Welcome to the forum. We're also from Middelburg. We love this town and will be sad to leave, but we can't wait to get to Ozz.

I'm sure you'll find lots of info and help on the forum if you need it. Good luck with your application!

Regards,

Elize
