The Final Countdown…

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...

43 days to go!

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!

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...

I think this has been the longest time we haven’t updated the blog! One reason for this is, well, we’ve just been a bit miserable since all our visitors from home left. I won’t bore you with the details, but we’ve been feeling a bit lost and a bit torn between the UK and Canada. We’re also about to hit the 7 month mark, which is crazy! It feels like decades since we were in the UK. We can’t really remember...

4 months in

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Things To Do, Vancouver | 12 comments

Last week it was officially 4 months since we left the UK. I can’t believe it’s been that long already. We’re at a bit of a funny stage at this point if I’m honest. We are both starting to get incredibly homesick right now, but do love living here. The weekends here are just great, the weather just now is amazing, sunny blue skies every day, and there are so many beautiful places we’ve seen already. But it is hard...
