Mum's the Word!

Something wonderful happened yesterday, and our entire family is pretty much in a sprightly mood because of this.

Camden Town Hall, City of London
After almost ten years of working in London as a cardiology nurse, my Mum is now officially a British citizen! Yay! She's been looking forward to this moment for quite some time now, and her turn to take the Citizenship Oath has finally come. Mum is beaming with pride in this photo, and my siblings and I are very, very happy for her. And while the three of us may not have been there to cheer her on, at least she had my aunt (her sister) and cousins (who became naturalized Brits last year) to savor this moment with her.

My cousin JN, always the goofball. :)
Mum is in a very celebratory mood after becoming British that she took my aunt and cousins out for dinner, went on a shopping spree for us and the kids, and is even planning on treating herself to another travel holiday elsewhere in Europe. She's on the lookout for travel discounts and holiday deals here, a travel deal website strongly recommended by a friend.

With her keen eyes, I'm sure Mum will be able to snag a great travel deal in no time. And when she does, count on her to go on another shopping spree again for us and her grandkids.

Thank you everyone! I do appreciate all the heartwarming comments you've left on my blog!

BTW, she didn't have to denounce her Filipino citizenship. So technically, she's a BRINOY. :)
