Boxes, Boxes and more Boxes!

Packers arrived at 8am sharp, 2 man team, so far really quick and efficient!

Very weird seeing everything all packed and wrapped up.

We head to my Dads tonight for a few days, the container will be delivered tomorrow morning and will go straight to Rochester on the way to Halifax. Fingers crossed it wont be too long waiting the other side to come out of customs!

Cornwall Weekend

We headed down to see my Mum in Cornwall this bank holiday with my brother Adam.

The weather was amazing and we spent some lovely time altogether, visiting little fishing villages and a lovely place called Cardinham Woods.

Jack had really good fun playing with Joseph who lives on the next door farm to my mum, cricket, football, exploring the fields and managed to lose his trainer in a cowpat, great!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is link to the photos of the weekend,


Back in time to what I thought would be long enough to get sorted for the packers arriving on Tues, how wrong can you be!! spent the next 9 hrs clearing cupboards, making trips to the tip, packing suitcases, managed to grab a final curry and watch the 24 season finale!!

Surprise weekend

Well, what a great weekend! expecting to see Auntie and Uncle for Sunday lunch, but on Sat afternoon they arrived with my cousins and kids who I havent seen for about 6 and 8 years! I was somewhat shocked when I opened the door to see them on the doorstep, but so chuffed to see them and grateful that they had made the long journey to come and see us for the weekend!

My Dad had arranged it all a couple of months ago, without any word to me. Jack and his new football buddy Josh did not stop kicking the ball all weekend and we all ate some good food, nice drinks and great laugh.

All vowed to it not being such a long gap this time and hopefully they will all be visiting us in Canada at some stage, yay!!!

Here is a family photo of us all for the Album!!

A great weekend was had by all !!

Update re other stuff, Archie all booked for flight week after us, received confirmation of shipping freight info for our container and have sorted land line and internet in NS for when we arrive.

Slowly getting there with the list of things to do!!,
