We have decided to renovate our home in March, mainly to paint the walls, upgrade the fence and replace the current carpets with timber flooring, and we have asked our tenants to leave by early March. This is all the preparations for my mum’s migration to Melbourne by mid this year. The application was submitted July last year, so hopefully it will be granted no later than July this year.
It’s been nearly one and half years since my mum took Trevor back to China in November 2007, and we miss them very much. We would like to have the renovation done as early as possible, so that they can book the earliest air ticket once the migration application is approved.
Once the renovation is done and my family is here, I will organise another BBQ party to celebrate our family reunion.
