Good morning! We went for an interview with Canadian Border Services yesterday and they confirmed that our PRRA (Pre-Removal Risk Assessment) was rejected so we now officially have to leave the country and will be unable to return to Canada for another year (without special permission).
Surprisingly, although upset inside, I was able to hold it together and immediately focused on yet another “new beginning” on the horizon. It’s the only way one can mentally cope with traumatic times. As soon as I got home I booked our plane tickets to go back to the UK on June 26 and now my head is spinning with everything that has to be achieved. Luckily I had the foresight to secure a rental house in blighty so once I have paid my 6 months rent in advance we are good to go.. It’s a beautiful town house dating back to 1780 with plenty of space for us as a family, to ease ourselves back into a new way of life and a new country. You see I haven’t been back to the UK for 9 years and lots of things have changed. I’ve also not seen my Mum and Dad for 9 years either so you can imagine the huge hugs they will get…
It’s time to try and think positively about our next life adventure… sometimes when one door closes another opens wide and despite the sadness at departing I know the future will hold good things and the earth will provide..
