… It is not necessarily all fun… but nevertheless it flies!!!
We’ve been keeping busy for the last couple of weeks – I think it has been good for us… Especially since our homesickness has hit an ALL-TIME high… Here’s a few updates:
The company Stef works for rented a car for us for the first two months in Canada… That two months ended end of February, which means that we have been car-hunting like crazy!! We’ve found one -
I have also started at my new job at J&B Engineering!!! First week done & dusted… I am going to have to go on a few courses, but I am sure that I’ll be settling in quite well over the next couple of months!!!
We still haven’t got all the necessary furniture, so today we decided to fill our dining room with a table (bar height)… We made it ourselves – pretty impressed with our efforts!! It still needs paint, varnish and chairs, but we are one step closer to using the dining room… Finally!!!
I am extremely excited to announce that our dog-sters will be arriving on Friday!!! We have to get them beds, bowls, leashes, and all that fun stuff….. but YaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAYYYY!!!! They are almost here!!!! Can’t wait to have them back in the home… I’m sure our spirits will be lifted somewhat!!!
Also lifting our spirits at the moment is the fact that it seems to be slowly (but surely) heating up here… The snow is melting (slowly) and turning to freaken slippery ice… but it IS melting!! Yay!!! The days are also noticeably longer… Currently we are 9 hours behind South Africa!!! From Monday, we’ll be 8 hours behind… (Freaken stupid daylight savings time!!!) **
Here is a photo of the snow on the road melting…
And some ‘comic relief’… **
