Finally, after 3 weeks of waiting we got our UK visas back. It took a bit longer than expected and was a bit of a drama. Mine got delivered to Newington, and my dad was there to pick it up. Chami's was to be delivered to the apartment at Waterloo.. so we found out that it was on the courier truck (via the tracking website) I rushed back to the apartment and waited and waited.
I even missed out on Friday drinks with the guys at work, but finally got Chami's visa too!
Also heard on the same day from Jem and Yui saying that some mail had arrived for us. So looks like our bank accounts are also ready to go! Yay! Things are finally getting sorted.
We fly out in less than 4 weeks!
