Thank you for your good will messages, you are true bloggy friends indeed. We are starting to find our feet here in our new world, which is turning into rather a friendly place to be as it happens. The children survived the first week at school and seem to be adjusting to their new surroundings much quicker than expected. A new car has been bought (I'm guessing you can probably picture the main man's face when he got the keys for that toy) and then there was talk of where we should drive to this weekend.
There are constant reminders that the mountains are close by so we went up Grouse Mountain and got the children on to skis for the first time. They took to that well, too. Visibility wasn't too great to begin with but by early evening the views looking back over Vancouver were stunning. I can't get over what a beautiful part of the world this place is.
As for me? Well, I've noticed a smattering of grey hairs decorating my head that definitely weren't there two weeks ago. But never mind, I have discovered an excellent yarn shop and am knitting a hat!
