We finally got the house empty after many trips to the donation centre and the dump. On the last night, we were eating off a tiny side table and sleeping with just our mattress on the floor! All packed up and ready to go. It’s hard to believe that our whole life now fits into … More We’re Here!
Hello lovely readers. If you’ve been following this Blog, you’ll know about my passport nightmare. If not, you can catch up here and here. As of March 16th, still no Citizenship Certificate despite my MP’s office sending 2 emails both with no response. I politely email her back and suggest that maybe it’s time for … More Passport Saga – The Finale. Spring Weather and on the Home Stretch Now
Well, the saga continues. 😦 As of yesterday, still no sign of my citizenship certificate. I’m now beyond belief. Another phone call to the passport office. This time, I get up at 5:30 am (they’re 2 hours ahead of me) so that I can perhaps be one of the first in line. The recording tells … More Our Move to Gran Canaria-Passport Saga – Part 2
I can’t deny that I’m excited for this next chapter in our life. Coming from Africa, I just couldn’t get used to the harsh winters that Edmonton has to offer. Vancouver was so very different and, even though the climate is very similar to that of London, I never really got used to it – … More Our Move to Gran Canaria – Passport Saga Part 1
We were heartbroken to have to have our darling Chewy put down last Monday. We’d had her for 17 years and she became my shadow for 15 of those years. She became so much a part of our lives, it was hard not to see her every day. I looked for her at certain times … More Goodbye to Chewy and Selling up for Our Move to Gran Canaria
We are loving the vegetarian meals, but have decided that we need a couple of meat meals a week. We’re definitely noticing that we have more energy and weight loss, although nothing significant this week. The Peanut Lime Noodles were really delicious and have become part of our regular suppers. I also made extra and … More My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Recipes that We Loved and Ones that We Didn’t
Well it’s official, folks, we’re moving to Gran Canaria! Where, you say? Gran Canaria is one of the islands in the Canary Islands archipelago off the North coast of Africa. We’re beyond excited. And terrified. And excited. Three years ago, my dream was to become a digital nomad with an online business that would enable … More We Are Moving to Gran Canaria!
Well, it’s been 3 weeks since moving to a completely vegetarian meal plan and, I’m surprised to say, I’m not missing meat at all. Impressive coming from 2 people who were complete meat and potatoes people! Hubby’s blood pressure is DOWN. His last reading at the doctor two weeks ago was 110/80. His previous reading … More Our Vegetarian Life – Weight Down AND Blood Pressure Down!
Hello everyone! Well, it’s been a week since eating a completely vegetarian diet and Michael’s lost 10 lbs! That’s so encouraging considering his heart condition. We didn’t manage to take his blood pressure as he left his blood pressure machine in his truck (he’s a long-haul truck driver), so we’ll only know later on this … More My (Almost) Vegetarian Life. Finally a Way of Eating that’s Working!
Hello everyone! I know, it’s been a while since my last post. We’ve all been sick which halted everything for a few weeks. Hubby had a mild heart attack last week. His cardiologist is baffled as to why it happened as tests showed he has the heart of an athlete – although he still needs … More My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – A Complete Week of Vegetarian/Vegan Meals
