New home

I’m happy to report that Mark was successful — we will, indeed, have somewhere to live as of August 1! Hooray!

You can see a picture of the new house on Mark’s blog. It’s in the east end, which is counter-intuitive since Mark will be teaching at the Mississauga campus of UofT, way in the west end, but we’re right near the subway, which actually makes us effectively closer to his work than being further west but up north away from the subway. We’re also closer to friends, and access to important things like grocery stores and community centres, so it’s all good. Thank you, my dear Mark, for all your hard work — I’m very grateful!

Now the packing begins…

Sweet digs! That house looks lovely, and I’m sure your orange fuzzy boy will enjoy that porch!

It looks like such a cute little place!

Oh! I love the look of the house it appears to be a craftsman style… love craftsman houses. Good luck with your move back to T.O. However, I do wonder now that Tigger has experienced country life can he go back to big city life?

I’m really glad that worked out. The house looks really nice.

Mark posted?

No new baby knits?

Well, moving. You’ve been a bit busy. Aug 1st? That’s pretty quick.

Hi Aven: it’s Matt (your cousin Vivien’s fiancée). Sue and Ian encouraged me to check out your blog, yesterday: so I did! Great knitting! It’ll be nice to be able to check up on my future cousins-in-law from time to time.

Nice new place? You’re probably close to my neighbourhood (Pape and Danforth).

Good luck getting everything ready for the move. It’ll be nice to finally meet you in person.
