Remember how, despite all of the time spent in the rainforest and at the beach, how our recent trip to Cairns was actually to submit a permanent residency application?
This application that (as my facebook friends can attest to) gave me so much damn grief. This application that used a forest's worth of trees (I had to shift to a larger binder shortly after this photo was taken) and cost three months' pay. This application that had me getting chest x-rays, blood tests, and finger printed.
Well, five and a half weeks later, it's been approved! Yay! I feel like I should have a meat pie and a sausage roll to celebrate, but I've already got lunch and dinner plans so I'll have to save my Aussie feasting until Andy gets home in two weeks.
They even sent back the christmas cards and things we included with our application. Cool!
