Well this is it! The party is on and our daughter Sarah is officially engaged to Richard. The party is in our back yard and it is a great night! Friends, family, food and a few drinks.
Won't say that I never thought this time would happen but Sarah had no intention of getting married any time soon. March 2008, she didn't even have a boyfriend! Sarah went to the Northern Territory to make her fortune. Out in Arnhiem Land in an Aboriginal community. A town called Nuggkah. That is where she met Rick. They became friends, then more than friends. It wasn't too long before I got a phone call to say she was moving to Darwin with Rick and his sister Tonya. Then a couple of days later they had jobs in a resort in Kakadu. Wasn't long before I got another phone call. "Mum, just thought that before I change my status on Facebook, I thought you should know, Rick has asked me to marry him and I said yes! About a week later, another phone call. "Mum, I want to come home, and I am bringing Rick and his sister. Is it ok if we all move in?" Well our almost empty nest went to overflowing again! They all moved in, got jobs, Andrew and I went on holiday, and now home, it is the engagement party. The wedding reception venue has already been chosen. What will lifes adventures bring next!
