Your counting of dates has to be BACKWARDS from the day you submit your application for citizenship (not forwards from the date residence was granted).
Yes I was in NZ when I found out

Now to the other questions, I have cars here and my furniture, would it be good to tell DIA my travel plans and book a return already from the uk in November?
