    Hi Clan mac,

    Nice to hear from you again, hows things going with your application? If I remember correctly Ian was going for his skills assesment and you were waiting for the new SOL list being published.

    Hi Colin,
    Thank you for your kind and quick response, I love this site - promise to visit more!
    We have submitted the paper based vetassess paperwork but our agent thinks it is likely that Ian will undertake his practical asessment around September or October this year, hopefully then we can lodge our application provided we get a positive skills assessment. Unfortunately Ian was made redundant again this April (he was also made redundant last April) but as always he has managed to find work again right away. It is depressing but it has strengthened our resolve to get to Australia, because we really believe that we are doing the right thing. This forum and PIO is full of great people who are willing to give people like us the benefit of their experiences and expertise, how nice that you remembered our story. You guys are great!

    Hi Borny,

    I have to ask, (just being nosey), why leave Jersey to live in Brum?:biggrin:

    I get asked that a lot. Mostly a career decision, but also Jersey wasn't for me... I'm a city boy at heart :)

    Long, long ago I left the midlands for Queensland in my 20ies, just never went back. Just spent 5 years overseas and knew where I wanted to be. Now I am home loving the gold coast once again, and being able to see kids and the grandchildren when ever we want
