Hi everyone. Hope ye all had a good weekend!

We have our AOS interview today at 1:00pm. We've got everything packed up and ready to go and are just hoping it'll all go smoothly :) Gosh, it seems like only the other day I was a newbie here and hijacking other people's threads cos I didn't know how to post properly!

I have to say, that no matter what the outcome today, I could not have done this without everyone's advice and guidance...and Off Topic to keep my mind off the process once I'd filed ;) So, a big YAY to VJ and all it's members :thumbs:

I said to Rob last night...imagine, we have to go and PROVE that we love each other tomorrow, and he said...We won't have to prove anything, once they see us they'll know...awww!!
