Default 1 year anniversary of landing ...

Hello everyone

It's been one year since we moved back to Canada. We did our landing in September - spent a few months travelling around before heading back to the UK for Christmas.

When we came back to Canada in January to start actually planning out our lives. Fortunately/unfortunately for us we arrived just before the pandemic hit - so it took my husband finding a job longer than he expected ... BUT he did find a job in April. It's been going great professionally since then, during the beginning of the lockdown we managed to buy our first house in Toronto - which we hope to turn into our forever home.

We have been blessed to stay with my parents since we arrived here - so no rent or stress like that which has been great, although a bit weird to be living with my parents again after 10 years of being out of Canada. My husband has adjusted quite well - he is loving it and is really really glad we made the move. Though we are both beginning to miss England, in particular our family there and the beach in Hove where we lived. My 3 year old still talks about wanting to move back from time to time - but she is happy as well. Already losing her English accent which makes me a bit sad.

We still have most of our stuff in boxes and TBH probably won't feel like we are actually settled until we move into our own home.

Some tidbits for new landers ...

Johnsons Insurance was the cheapest place to get car insurance and they were able to count our UK driving experience for us.
We set up a bank account with HSBC which offers great deals of new comers to Canada.

It's been a strange year back with the pandemic and lockdown and I am glad to be home and out of my husband and myself I am the one finding the adjustment harder. Though for now I do think we made the right decision.

Hope you're all well and keeping safe in these crazy times.
