All done & dusted!
« on: February 01, 2011, 07:19:26 PM »
It's been a long 3 1/2 years but my visa journey in the UK is finally OVER! As of 3pm today I am a fully fledged British Citizen! Trust me when I say, it has been well worth the time, cost and sacrifices that myself & my family have been through.

Time for a nap now  [smiley=sleeping2.gif]  ;D  :P

Congratulations!  [smiley=2thumbsup.gif] [smiley=balloon.gif]

I hope you're doing something nice to celebrate!
On s'envolera du même quai
Les yeux dans les mêmes reflets,
Pour cette vie et celle d'après
Tu seras mon unique projet.

Je t'aimais, je t'aime, et je t'aimerai.
