it's here that we are

      Hello! I haven't actually been trying to be mysterious about our move and it amuses me only a very little that I'm coming across as such. I hadn't said anything yet because whenever I think of explaining everything it feels sorta daunting! We've moved to southwestern British Columbia! For those of you unfamiliar with North American geography we are still in Canada which is nice but but we are also over 2300km (1400 mi) away from Yellowknife. Worlds apart, really. And a million differences between the two.

      There's the distinct possibility that we may return to the North within the next two years but for now we are where we are. And seeing as how this wee post has somehow taken me most of the day to finish I will wrap it up for now and fill you in on the rest later!

Welcome to the South! Your blog is about to get much greener and greyer. I was always struck by how much sunshine the north had in the winter compared to here.
