How we ended 2012 and started 2013.... Written by my mum....
New Year’s Eve eve (Dec. 30th) at about 10:00
pm Scott & I were in the middle of watching a movie (DVD) when we
saw Samantha, our youngest at the door, opening it with her key AND she
has other people with her. (For those of you who don’t know,
she doesn’t live here anymore and usually lets us know when she is
coming over.) And she has people with her! What the h#!!. So we stop
the movie and get up to greet her at the door and HOLY Sh*t, it is Brett
and Ben (our eldest and her husband)!!! Needless to say we were very
surprised as they were supposed to be working on a cruise ship out of
Sydney, Australia. Turns out they had had enough of living and working
on a floating hotel and are home to stay. So all the emails asking
“What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?” were to ensure that we would be
home when they got here. Sam found out when Brett posted something and
it said that she was in Richmond, BC. They then managed to surprise
our friends Shelley & Bruce, cousins’ Ron & Is on New Year’s Eve
when they came over to play Rummoli and bring in the New Year. Then we
invited the Victoria family for tea yesterday and surprised all of
them! Best surprised moment was when Leilani said “Shut the front
door!” Second was when Is jumped when she saw Brett….
Great to have
them home. They are settling into our cottage in the backyard and
changing Brett’s old room into a games room. Now for Brett to find a
job, and Ben to work on little projects around the house, while he
awaits his final approval on his immigration papers. And he will
probably see about doing some volunteer work at one of the community
theatres to get his name in the right circles.
Ben's immigration! This is the most important with our life. Once he gets his immigration then he can start working!!! I have been thinking and hoping I can go back to school! I have been looking in to the Education Assistant program at Camosun Collage here in Victoria.
