Hi there! I’m still here, even if I haven’t been posting for a bit. I have been knitting, but I can’t prove it, because the camera is with Mark in Toronto.

He’s there looking for a place for us for next year; it’s a frustrating and exhausting job, but it’s almost over (we hope!) and he’ll be coming back on Sunday. If we’re lucky, we’ll have a place rented by then… it’s not fun doing this long-distance, and Toronto’s a really big city to run around looking at apartments in.

He’s surviving, but he’s not enjoying himself, apart from the few snatched moments of socialising with friends and family.

So wish us luck, and maybe I’ll be able to report success by the end of the weekend! The movers are coming on July 28th, after all, so it would be great if we had a home for them to bring our stuff to by August 1!

Happy Canada Day, too!

Wow! We moved while I was pregnant, and I must admit it wasn’t too fun! I’m glad you have movers. I wish Mark good luck!

Definitely wishing you good luck. It’s so bad for the baby to live out of a moving van not to mention, it’s impossible to find anything [tongue firmly in cheek].

Poor Mark. Househunting all by his lonesome? Is the weather behaving in Toronto at least?

So sorry Mark has to apartment hunt by himself Aven but the weather lately in Toronto has been really fine..not so humid..nice breeze..and sunny..except for the few odd thunderstorms we’ve been having but they don’t last long. It’s good Mark can take a bit of a break with his friends anyway..and more ears can help him find a place sooner

Happy Canada Day! I hope all goes well with the house hunting!

Happy Canada Day to you too! Good luck with your house hunting. I don’t envy you that. Hope the market is better in TO than it is in Calgary. Love your knitting BTW… that outfit is too adorable.

I am sorry Mark isn’t having much fun, but I have to admit that I am selfishly happy that you are coming back to TO! :)
