Default Hello again......and update..:)

Hi everyone,

It's been over a year since we moved over to Calgary and it's truly flown by!!

I came over in March 2013 and family got here in April, we bought our cars and purchased a fantastic new home.

I've put in the long hours at my new job here ( Westcan Bulk Trans ) where I still enjoy working... where there's some really good and helpful people I am happy to say.

My wife enjoys her work life, not too far from our home and is happy with our lives here overall.

Our kids are progressing through school, doing multiple activities that were not available to them in UK.......they absolutely love it here too

We chose the PNP/TWP route after PR refusal and glad to say the persistence, hard work, patience and positivity is paying off..... waiting for our PNP Nomination which should lead to PR application.

I am truly happy to see my family living where I can provide them the best future possible.....to my knowledge.....and grow up enjoying what there is to offer in this Great Nation.

Thanks to everyone who helped us make this plan B happen....

Bal

Hi Jimmydean,

Thanks for the compliment, it was a very long and difficult road that came to a dead end.....
Then I discovered an alternative avenue.... to reaching our goal of a better life in a land where we could enjoy the rest of our time....

Kind regards to you and yours..........Bal......

We've had some days of extreme weather and it's been a longer winter than usual I've been told but besides that it's been fantastic!!

We've been embracing and enjoying everything Calgary has to offer......including the snow...

Met lots of very genuine good people who are now friends.

I have no complaints about Calgary or Canada........did the research before coming so knew what we were getting ourselves into...

How's it all been for you over here ?.........
