Smile Phew we made it!!!!!

Hi all

We have arrived in NS

Everything great so far, still doesnt feel as if our feet have touched the ground yet

Landing was a breeze, really friendly border people, no proof of funds requested, just passports, COPR forms, then moved on to customs area where they stamped the lists We were through the exit doors within an hour of the plane landing.

Met by some friendly faces, thanks although think we were very shell shocked at this point.

Weather for the last few days has been awful although now on the deck with glass of wine and blue sky

I had an interview yesterday and also applied for another job, so will wait and see.

Kids really settled, DS starts school for the last week or so before the summer break on Monday, staff at the school really nice and friendly and facilities look excellent.

Thanks to everyone for all their support and good wishesI will still be around here for sure
