Many congratulations, Wayne.
Although only a week behind you in submitting our file, our PER was quite a lot behind yours. However, we are Cat 2 and so should be priority stream, although since there are so few other Cat 2s it is impossible to tell if this is actually happening or not.
All I can say is that our ECAS is still not even showing us as IN PROCESS and we have no line about "we started processing your file on ....", so I fear it might still be a while for us.
Never mind! There is still much to be looked forward to - my husband arrives here tomorrow for a much awaited reunion.
We last saw one another on New Years Day, so we are so happy to just be able to be together for a short while. Also, he moves into our new home on his return and is making it all beautiful for when I can join him. He isn't the best of decorators, so best not to rush him!
All the best to all those waiting for Meds, especially all my fellow pre-Christmas applicants who feel they have been overlooked so far. Your day is coming
