Moving house is, not to sound like a drama queen, but it’s a torture! As we are getting ready to move house for the sixth time in three and half years (yes, you read that correctly, six) I thought that a post about how to survive moving house was appropriate!
If you thinking of building or renovating your home, then here is some advice that we have been given or picked up in the very early stages of our house build. This will be the first of many house related blog posts so I hope that they will be of some benefit to you!
1. Windows or Doors
Take some time to think about having direct access to the outside. Maybe you had two windows in you plans for the kitchen but consider having a door or double doors instead to give you direct access to the outside from your kitchen.
I have complied a small list of my latest loves. It is basically some things that interest me in some way or another everyday and I am sure some of you will relate to one or more of them!
1. Leopard Print
This blog was not aimed to be a fashion blog, but what girl doesn’t like to talk about clothes and accessories every now and then?!
So, yep, leopard print is my new love. The last jumper I bought from H&M was leopard print, as was my scarf…. and my sunglasses and I just ordered a leopard pint skirt from Boohoo.com. I may have a problem!
I also noticed that H&M have leopard print bed sheets…too Bet Lynch do you think?
Jasper to Whistler
Our week long road trip was brilliant! We seen so much and enjoyed it all the more as my sister and brother in law flew over from Ireland to visit us for a couple of weeks. They first came over in October of 2015 so we had already showed them some of Edmonton, Banff and Lake Louise, so we all agreed that this time a short road trip would be fun.
As I tend to ramble a bit, I decided to break this trip up into two blog posts, so keep an eye out for Part 2!
Moving abroad is…daunting, exciting, nerve racking and well to be honest, a lot of work! Sorting out visas. Sussing out areas to live in. Finding somewhere to live. Buying furniture. Getting setup and registered with a tax number so you can legally work. Finding a job. Sorting out your driving licence. Setting up bank accounts. I can go on and on! These are only a few of the many tasks you have to deal with when you make the move.
Just remember you are not the first person to move abroad, so there is always plenty of help out there on the internet! Here are some really helpful sites and groups that may make your move to Canada a little bit easier.
