    Thanks, Biff. Kwan back to her normal self and doesn't get ill very often. She's certainly full of beans with the pass.

    Thanks, Dave. No pressure with the driving theory, the important one is now done and dusted and she can relax.

    Thanks, Kev.

    The only saving grace is they are getting fewer and far between. Albeit, to more extravagant amounts of hard cash.

    Best of luck with ILR Link, my wife also applies in October and we are fully prepared I believe (though supplying documents showing we live at the same address has not been as easy as you would think...). I hope UKBA don't throw too many additional hoops down for in-country applications from now til October, though you know they will.....

    Thanks, Gavva, and good luck to you both, too. It's amazing how time flies and only seems like yesterday my wife arrived at these shores.

    We have three-week holiday in LOS late July/August and on our return will prepare for the ILR application. Though, really, there's not a great deal to it. We will be going down the personal visit to Croydon route as we really can't be doing with a long wait for a decision and neither want to be parted from my wife's passport for an extended period.

    I think at this stage there isn't much that will change between now and October regards additional hoops, but you never know. Invariably, any changes are more likely to affect new applicants. Though, won't be surprised to see an enhanced fee. In fact, I'm looking forward to it.

    Was up at 6am this morning, which isn't my natural time for a Saturday morning, and was at driving theory centre by 7.30am and glad to report Mrs_Link passed her driving theory test with flying colours with a massive 48 out of 50 for the multiple choice and a respectable 58 out of 75 for hazard perception.

    All the more of an achievement having studied for her LITUK and driving theory in tandem over the past months and took both tests within two weeks of each other.

    Nic, there was no problem sitting in Pearson's while my wife took the test.

    Congratulations! Worth the early start :-) Did the hazard perception include anything about what to do when running short of fuel ;-) Wish good luck for the driving test :-)

    Thanks, Ian. Now you come to mention it, running out of fuel answer is 'husband can push car to safe area' apparently.

    lol, but true

    It makes me worry about the news article of the lady from York who got burnt decanting petrol into a glass jug with a lit cooker nearby, some of my relatives whilst preparing gunpowder for fireworks would think that normal practice, though they might just put out the cigarette held in the corner of their mouth first!

    Not wishing ill on the poor lady in question, but it does make you wonder about the level of common sense of some of our fellow countrymen.

    Put it out, blimey they must have had the safety officer round, normally it just gets moved to the corner of the mouth furthest away from the fireworks,

    Uncle Huwat, the local gunpowder expert, unfortunately, only has one corner of the mouth, he'd have to return home to get the other corner, which is preserved in formaldahyde ;-)
