That was quick!

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it - my fiancee rung last night to say that she'd just recieved our NOA2 in the post! I can't believe how quick that was. At this rate Ill be over in the States in a few weeks (well, maybe not)! Anyhow we didn't recieve any notifications via email or anything so it was quite a surprise. I guess I better start sorting out what I need for the next step of the process!

Anyway good luck to everyone still waiting - I feel a bit guilty like I've jumped some sort of que or something.
