Life is flipping busy at the moment, so sorry for not popping in and keeping you updated with what has been happening. Since May 5th we have had visitors from Britain, namely my mam and step-father. They came to see their great-granddaughter. The trip was planned back in November and at that time we weren't sure when we would be moving.
Anyhow, their visit has been busy for both them and me, with things to do everyday. Today (Monday) we had tea with Queen Victoria:
What both my mam and step-father found amusing was that they do not celebrate her birthday in her country of birth, but here in Canada we go all out. There was an event at the local museum and we went and had an enjoyable time.
They leave on Saturday evening, so only a few days left now.
A while ago I mentioned a friend/co-worker/surrogate Canadian brother had cancer. He lost his fight last Tuesday and tomorrow (Tuesday) is his funeral. Please say a prayer for his wife and two young children (ages 2 & 5) and his parents and family. They are all devastated and understandably so.
The house is coming along nicely and we had a visit on the weekend with all the family and got to look through it. Very excited and pleased with how it is all looking. Here are a couple of photos. The first one is of the ceiling in the family/living room looking towards the kitchen.
That light fixture is going and shouldn't actually be there. We are all very pleased with the look of the ceiling.
This one is of the kitchen looking towards the family room:
The counter tops are not in yet, they are a light granite I think/hope!!! Don't remember what I ordered. All the tiles, hardwood and carpet are in. They are down to the nitty gritty and fingers crossed should be ready in time for us to move into. Can't wait to show you all what's what.
I finally sold the last of the big things on Kijiji over the weekend. Plus I got rid of all the firewood we had left over from this year. Packing will resume in earnest after the weekend, although dh has made a start on clearing out the garage as that is a big job.
We managed to get a lot of old wood burned on the fire pit yesterday so again a good jobbed, jobbed as I say.
Our little munchkin just turned 6 months old:
And has just got her first tooth and should be crawling pretty soon, as she doesn't like laying still!!
She is a little character that's for sure with those big blue eyes.
Another bit of news, our Little Princess is going to be a big sister in September. It's going to be a surprise as to what sex it will be, but my bet is on a little boy.
I may not get back to posting until after next weekend, but want to thank each and every one of you who pops by and reads my blog. I do so appreciate it.
