Hello!
I'm still here... I don't really feel I have much to offer this forum, so I just pop in daily to read the 'most recent posts' and chip in occasionally.  Now that I have my hound, I'm not lounging about the house as much as I used to, so my screen time has reduced a lot!  :)

Nonsense! Your comments are worth their weight in gold!  ;D

How is gorgeous Jimmy?  :D

Hello! I’m not new, but been slaving away working on my flr. Went briefly to the states a few weeks ago, it was NOT a good trip. I love this forum, and all the regulars and new folks.


Oh, wow, that's a shame about your trip. :-\\\\  Good luck with your visa prep.   :)

Best reason to be around less!  I'm so happy your adoption went so well and Jimmy settled in like he's always belonged with you.

Hello :) Good to see all these familiar names. I feel almost phobic about coming on this forum since our application process two years ago. The forum was excellent of course, but the experience so stressful. Amazing the expertise and support here. We're preparing for FLR(M) next. I finally got my partner to sign up too. Guessing that this winter is not going to be great timing for any immigration process, but getting prepared nonetheless.

Howdy folks!

Over year since starting this process and nearly a year getting our spouse visa which is INSANE!

Popping back on to say hello and say all is well in N.Ireland. Keeping on top our physical mail (even bought a filing cabinet  ;D) for the FLR at the beginning of 2021.

Hopefully I can still be use to anyone going through this messy process, but with the best payoff  :)

Hi Adam, thanks for popping in! Top marks for the filing cabinet! I started out with a divided folder and ended up with a cardboard box!  ;D

I wanted this, but in all the years could never convince my husband it was worth the future hassle of moving it (before we bought our house) or renovating around it (after we bought our house).  He agreed thst in the FutureTM we should have a nice filing cabinet, but not 'til our house is ready.  I'm a dual citizen, now.  My immigration journey is complete.  I no longer care about filing cabinets.  *hair tiss*
