Happy Days...

Today is officially a Happy Day. Today, Lindsay got her settlement visa, which means she is officially allowed to stay here indefinitely. And that makes me very, very HAPPY! Although it was one of those things that they [big scary government] were quite unlikely to deny, it's still kind of nerve-racking getting together all your evidence, and worrying that you don't have enough proof that you've lived together over the past 2 years (which is what they're looking for). I was also slightly worried because they said it could take up to 3 months, which would be a bit hairy as we're going back to the States for Christmas and the immigration people would still have our passports! But in the end it only took 3 weeks. So, 2 1/2 years after the process began, Lindsay is 'settled'. Thank you God!
