    When I move I could be abscent for a while depending on how quick I get internet access. Which should be the week we move in.

    Raven that is most wonderful news to hear my friend. It really is great to hear that at long last you and your family are getting out of that nightmare of a place called Hell..I mean Hull!

    Seriously I am so excited for you and your family and I hope that all goes smoothly and well with the move and all the paperwork.

    Certainly time for celebrations! :)

    I know but it would be fun no fun if it wasn't I guess. When we moved it was amazing how quick things moved. Literally two months after receiving the visa's we were on our way there, lol.

    And it would probs be better leaving it till after Christmas I would think. But I am just a Christmas freak :p

    Because I served in the army for a good number of years and served a small time on the Falklands It was easier for me to get residence. But because the falklands is so small and they have no benefits system you need to have a set amount in the bank. And to live there yes you need to apply but because the island is small and there aren't so many homes available it was hard. Because I have no criminal record and have served there it was easier but they are very and I stress Very picky on who they let in on a perminant basis.

    Luckily I am within the criteria I am able to move there but I needed permission from their government I had to wait almost a full year. Its been a long haul and one I'm happy to say has paid off.

    I also needed to find work because again their is no benefits system so I needed to be able pay my way so to speak. I have that Job and start in February now.

    The Falklands is a place I need to live because I have seen so much in my army Career that the last few years since America's 9/11 and the War in Iraq and Afghanistan I need to be at peace. And there is the place I want to be.
