6 months on…

Ironically we found that written near our apartment in Vancouver about a week before we moved back! It’s now been almost 6 months since we moved back from Canada and we still talk about it pretty much daily! I thought it would get easier the longer we are away from it, but its the opposite! I’ll touch on that again a bit later, don’t want to start this off on too much of a negative! Last week we did one of the things we were...

Life back in the UK…

Posted by on Jun 26, 2014 in UK, Vancouver | 2 comments

I know, it’s been a looonnnng time since we did a blog post. The flurry of activity we had moving back home has finally died down now and I’m pleased to say we’re both nicely settled back in the UK. Leaving Vancouver was as hard as we thought it would be. We stupidly thought that moving out of our apartment and flying home in the same day would be a good idea, but it wasn’t! Not that we had to rush around or anything, but...

The Final Countdown…

Posted by on Mar 15, 2014 in Vancouver | 5 comments

Well I can’t believe we are back here again, preparing to do a massive move to another country. And we feel…exactly the same as we did this time last year! As I mentioned in my last post, we are feeling a bit numb about it at the moment. I have moments of being really excited about seeing people and being back in the UK (hello UK chocolate, tea bags, cheese, and heinz beans & sausages!) But then also moments of being quite upset...

I left my heart in San Francisco

Last week was our last one at work, and it was a bit emotional! Regardless of our reasons for going back to the UK, we have made some good friends here and I personally can say that I’ve never worked with so many lovely people all at once, so I was very sad on my last day. I had a leaving lunch with everyone from the office, my boss gave me a gorgeous necklace and bracelet as a leaving present, and I had leaving drinks with people on my...

43 days to go!

Posted by on Feb 3, 2014 in General, Sport, Vancouver | 2 comments

I was going to call this post ‘6 weeks to go’, but I thought I’d work out how many days it actually was until we moved back to the UK. As I’m crap with maths, I just Googled ‘how many days until 18th March 2014′, and I was pretty shocked to see that it’s only 43 days! I can’t believe we’ve been here nearly a year, and I also can’t believe that in a little over 6 weeks, we’ll be...

Snowboarding, San Francisco, and a big ring!

Posted by on Jan 21, 2014 in General, Trips, Vancouver | 0 comments

I’ve wanted to go snowboarding for as long as I can remember. I’ve only been skiing once when I was about 16, at Killington in Vermont for a school ski trip. It was bloody amazing and I loved it, but for some reason I have never been again, even though I’ve wanted too. Natalie has skied before, on some dry slopes in Scotland, probably around the same time. I imagine we were both a bit more fearless back then. I also...

Winter in Vancouver

Posted by on Jan 7, 2014 in Vancouver | 4 comments

Since our last blog post (I know, it was ages ago!), quite a lot has happened! We’ve been holding off on the blog post for a while as we’ve been deciding what to do in regards to staying in Vancouver longer or coming home in March. But I’ll come to that later! The lead up to Christmas here was quite exciting, albeit a little weird for us not being around familiarity (my god I missed Boots 3 for 2 on gifts this year!!) The city...
