Life back in the UK…

Posted by on Jun 26, 2014 in UK, Vancouver | 3 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...

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.

Weeks before we left for Vancouver I had already started looking for work out here, I even applied for a few jobs from the UK. I naively thought that once we got here it would be quite easy to get a job. The reality is that it’s become the bane of my life at the moment. For someone who is here on a temporary workers visa it’s nigh on impossible to even get an interview for a job that you want. I think this is the longest I’ve...

Health, work, football, and other thoughts

I thought I’d finally post an update from me as I’ve been a bit of a miserable bastard until about a week ago, meaning I didn’t really feel like writing about what we had been doing. Fortunately Natalie has been keeping the blog up to date so it’s not all bad. I’ve bored people to death with the story of me biting my tongue whilst eating steak in London before we came to Canada, but I do feel like that is where all...
