Default On our way soon!

We fly out to Calgary on the 26th October this sunday

wow!

made the hairs on my arm stand up!

I am wishing you all the luck in the world for your new life in Calgary. You are about 4-5 months ahead of us.
We are waiting on LMO now, then Temp work visas to come. Was told 12 weeks in total roughly.

Where abouts are you heading for in Calgary? we are going to the SE.

Hi Julie,

My oh is freaking out with the amount of cases we have.

If you see us at check in he will be the one with the the hunch from all the cases.

Hope everything goes well for you.

cant believe it is here.

Although starting to get fed up woth the tears of everyone else( without seeming too horrible)

I have managed to limit the shipping to 9 boxes and some pictures, so thats an achievement.

I remember the feeling well. After three days of frantic packing and hundreds of visits to the local tip we spent two nights in a local hotel. The first night we had to cancel all our plans to see friends as we were so tired and were in bed sound asleep at 8 p.m.! We literally just collapsed when it was all done. We were so glad we had then arranged to go and see our friends in France before leaving for Canada it was just the break we needed and recharged our batteries.

Good luck to you

Good Luck with your new life Julie. How great that you have managed to find out others on the same plane, I hope we are lucky to meet fellow expats when we go.

Oh I got a bit like that too! I think one is so wrapped up in the functional stuff, you hardly have time for the emotional, and of course we were excited to be going. I really couldn't see whay anyone should be so sad.

I think I told my MIL, when I lost patience with her moping "It's not goodbye for ever; you'll see us all again!"
"I wouldn't count on it!" she sniffed. SIGH!

Thought I would post a wee note and wish you all the best for the trip over, should be a lovely day when you get over maybe just a wee bit nippy when you get in though. Enjoy the next few days!! Keith and the girls
