A VIL arrives.

At long last, a Very Important Letter arrived in the post this morning – . We’re not sure if it is a coincidence that the letter was sent from the embassy (and arrives here two days later in FirstClass mail) the day after that Kristen’s parents contacted their senator to see what was going on but it does seem very suspicious that the letter has finally come through (but it was quick work once the phone call was made). Hopefully we won’t be the uk equivalent of Blunkett’s nanny and appear in American newspapers as someone fasttracking visa forms as this has been anything but the fast track.
The interview and medical exam is next Friday. As my surname starts with H I get to see the doc before the interview – at 8am in the morning…..something tells me this could be a long day.
There is a possibility that we could then fly out to america on holiday for christmas, but looking at the prices, if we flew back on the 2nd Jan, the prices start from £3000 each – yep, 3grand. If we fly back the day before, it drops to a respectable £700 each – but thats still a fortune.
