I'm so happy, I got a phone call this morning from a lady in HO regarding discretion to my name on my application, afterwards she told me that my application has been successful and I should get my letter with my documents by Monday 12th and an invitation latter on the 14th. Just to this this time on Monday when I called it had not even been assigned to a caseworker. Lord works in good timing. I will definitely update my timeline when the letter arrives :D

:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: Pretty annoyed.. Not jealous for the people who got approval. But me who applied on first week of March is still struck and people with 4th week got approvals. Same like me, people from February and even January didnt get approval. I am talking about the straight forward applications. When I was ringing them, they are saying its not even allocated to a case worker. So why dont they do the First come first serve basis and then the people will get a clue whats going on. I think HO is hiding behind the excuse of 6 months time span which they were allowed, so that the CW's can leave our life on their draws and celebrate holidays and BBQ's..
