Saturday night was all happy and sad. On one hand we were celebrating Matt's 30th birthday (whether he wanted us to or not) complete with the band singing Happy Birthday and a bottle of Cava being cracked at 12 'o' clock.
On the other hand it was Robyn's leaving drinks which was a bit of a bummer. Robyn moved here with her friend Matt (different Matt to the afore mentioned) a couple of weeks before we first started and they were our neighbours so we all sort of settled in together.
Robyn's Matt then went back to Oz and Robyn flew the coop of the staff quarters moving in with a local buddy and well and truly placing herself in Inveraray itself not just in the George culture. This included striking up a relationship with a local fellow so now her visa has expired it's all quite upsetting. She is going back home in the hope of being able to come back on some sort of student or skilled migrant visa but it's all up in the air. Working here we get exposed to so many people who's path in life is determined by the ability to get (or not get) visas. Pretty glad we came over hitched already :)
