Waiting in line... again

It's been a while since we last had dealings with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, but now we're back playing the waiting game again, this time for Mike's mum. At current rates of progress, it will be around four years from now before this latest application is processed and she will be able to come out and live here with us permanently.

It is frustrating. The kids love having their Nana here and we're all the family she has. If things had worked out differently, we would have all applied to emigrate together and wouldn't have had to leave her on her own in England. As it is, parents and grandparents have low priority for the immigration service and we just have to be patient. But when a person is nearer four score years than three score and ten (I don't think she'll mind me saying that!!), every year counts.
