And We're OFF :-)

I've just got the email from DCSF with the DHL tracking info and I can see it on the DHL website already with the message "shipment picked up" YEAH!!! It is out of the hands of DCSF and on its way :-)

Thursday, February 26, 2009 Shipment picked up 11:44

I will be checking its progress across the globe and can't wait to see the message "shipment delivered" :-)

It's my 'Mummy Day' today - Alice is at Nursery, and I'm trying hard to paperchase!

Now we need more details as to what happens next and how long it takes?

Hi Kate,
Hope Alice has a good time at nursery and that you get loads of your paperchasing done :-)
How long is a piece of string lol?? I have no idea how long it will take to receive our referral! It could be almost immediately or it could take a couple of months!
