After finishing her initial working visa and working with a temp agency, Miranda studied nursing to eventually move back and get a sponsored visa. Now that Miranda and her son Declan have returned and are setting up life in Winnipeg, we talk pubs, working abroad, pop culture, and homesickness for Glasgow. Then we had a pure dead brilliant night out!
