I never gave a thought to Xmas around the corner aswell, my first one without my mum, im going to have to arrange something really special to make it up to the kids

Hi Mandi, I'm so excited for you flying out soon. We are hoping to fly out to Vancouver in May 2009, so this xmas will be our last with all our extended family we are making it extra special, maybe staying with them for a few days.

The one thing that makes me sad about moving out there is that my daughter is only 9 months old, she'll be about 18 months old by the time we go and she will never really remember my family, my son is very close to his grannies and grandads and I think will always have that bond whereas with my daughter they wont.

Hi Laura, i can sympathise with you there coz my sister had a baby girl last year, she is 14 months old now and im am sooo close to her
Its going to be hard to say goodbye to her, especially missing her growing up, im also worried she wont know me when i visit, we both have webcams though with microphones so im going to make sure she knows her Auntie Mandi on the tv screen atleast
I know from last time that the kids loved talking with my mum and dad on the webcams and when i spoke to them it felt like they were in the next street rather than a different country
Hope that helps xx

We've all agreed to get webcams, they are a must

I know it will be hard, but who knows, we will prob move out there and end up sponsoring my family to come over

I know my mum is already planning on coming out for 6 weeks when we're settled, it has finally sank in with her that we are moving and I can see it's affecting her, she's normally not an emotional person, but she's become so much more affectionate and excited to see or hear from us, she is having my son for the half term week and she's already bought loads of activities, my sil is planning a halloween party and my mum has bought him an outfit.

It's nice to see her like this but it's also breaking my heart as I know we will have to say goodbye soon and I don't think I'm strong enough to cope with my mum crying

Hi mandi

just applied at walmart...like the sound of the discounts

We had hassle with OH family, but now we are here im not stressing on it, in the uk it really hurt when they wouldnt listen, but the kids do miss them, but they have such a fab life now and settled at school.

Have you tried a few of the expats that are renting?? ask who they used?
i know rachel is renting, she may know someone around calgary that has something, i have her email if you need it
