Smile 365 Days...so far

Well, it's exactly one year today since we landed at Lester pearson.

Then:

1. It was raining, dull and dreich.
2. We were scared sh**less and thinking "Oh my God, what have we done?".
3. One of the cats was covered in her own filth - a welcoming present to bring to our new home.

Now:

1. Looks like it's shaping up to be a nice sunny day outside my window.
2. Our emotions have been numbed by frequent infusions of Tim Hortons (and probably our neural synapses too)
3. The cats have found new places in the home to leave little 'presents'

Thanks to everyone on here for the laughs, support, encouragement, sarcasm, abuse, scorn, ridicule and whatever. I shall pay you all back in full when I get around to ticking off my vengeance list.

Best wishes to all.

Happy Canniversary!
You forgot to add the jobs bit to the second list, you didn't have any when you landed did you?

You're not leaving us too are you??

Then: Only the fantasy ones in my mind

Now: I'm now onto my 4th job and still looking.

No I'll not be leaving soon - you can't get rid of me so easily. In fact, I'm just getting around to addressing the 'S' section of my Get Even list so I think Steve666 is due round about now.......

No, I'm Mister 'Your job is shite, the pay is crap and you have the combined IQ of an Appalachian inbred....I've got something better.'

You could always have a sera-brul cut over the eyes so you're happy wherever you are.
