Time flies…

Hi everyone!! It’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted on any of my blogs… a lot has happened in over the last couple of months – all of which I will update you in due time!!! 😀

Firstly – Yes, we are officially living in Canada!!! Stef started working on the 2nd & we are obviously still settling in!!! Lots of admin to be done, but we are taking it one step at a time!! 🙂

Here is a summary of what has been going on over the last couple of months:

On 30 November 2012 we got married!!! <3 **

We returned to South Africa to spend Christmas with our families!!! … &to pack our clothes for our BIG move!!! We were only allowed 46kg each!!! – All our possessions reduced to 46kg… hard times!!! 😦

On 29 December we got on the plane on our way to Edmonton!!! After 33 hours of travel (which included the immigration processes), we finally got to relax and start settling into our temporary apartment!!

Because of jet lag, we went into the New Year sleeping!!! ;) **

Happy 2013 for all you guys!!! 😀 **

    Welcome back and welcome to Canada. Can’ wait to hear how you’re settling in to your new environment. In Toronto we’re experiencing a very snowy wintery season so far. How is it in Edmonton? Cold, I would imagine.

    1. Thank you so much!! So far we are settling in just fine!! In the week that we’ve been here it has only snowed once – and for a very short time!!! So, we are lucky, but I am expecting a turn in this very mild temperatures!!! Not quite knowing what to expect though!! 🙂 **

  9. Xandre! How did you ever manage to get a horse in your wedding photographs? I’m also surprised that you managed to find time for a honeymoon in Europe so soon before your move to Canada! No wonder you were exhausted with all of that and jet lag to boot! I am just getting tired thinking about it!

    Cheers

    John
