Immigration

Usually when you screw up with the immigration you screw up majorly. One document out of place and you're looking at a re-file. I sent in a detailed support document basically briefing them on our story. Someone woke up happy that morning and we received a phone call yesterday to submit the documents we'd left out, one included the Police Reports that we still have not received, but this is where Character References come in handy. It's not like we can call the FBI directly and ask for our Police Reports that have been requested twice already.

We will send the needed documents in on Monday with the work visa extension. Everything seems copacetic with Immigration right now, but minimal. At least the application has been lodged a week after submission. My cousin, who's wife is British, lodged her application in January and only got a lodgment receipt when they got a lawyer involved.

In other Immigration news, I woke up to an article this morning about the NZ Immigration investigating 34 staff for corruption.

Secretly, I wish we had one of those 34 staff on our case.

Eyes
It was a hideous night, but codeine and paracetamol made his day. The eye looks alot better this morning. The blister at the injection site has gone, that was the main attraction. Now it just looks like he lost a fight.

Today we will know when the next surgery is.

Update: 1.15pm tomorrow we have an appointment in the Day Surgery. Not sure what that is for.
Monday 4.30pm another appointment in the day surgery for an anesthesia test. He'll go under general anesthesia for the 2nd surgery on the left eye.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
