Default 50 years today ..........

We landed in Canada

We came to BC for 2 years, knew within a matter of months that we loved the country, and became Canadian citizens in early 1974.

Neither of us has ever been sorry that we came here, though we have occasionally wondered about what it would be like to live for longer than 1 year in Australia and in New Zealand, and would have tried if anything had gone sideways here.

Never had any desire to go back to live in the UK, holidays every 6-10 years were more than enough to confirm we had made the right decision.

I think a BE mug is in order



Hey look...a ghostly mug. The years bit isn't reflected. Spooky
