It’s spring. Strange- I’ve really got that feeling of hope and warmth that often gets associated with this time of year. I certainly don’t remember feeling this aware of the flowers blooming, the birds tweeting or the gradual growth of green around the city this time last year. Maybe it’s because I was too pre-occupied… Continue reading Toronto Cherry Blossom Watch
Weekend getaway to Muskoka and Algonquin I had the realisation this morning that I’ve only spent a measly 5 (!) days out in the countryside since moving to Toronto just over a year ago. By countryside, I’m talking no large tower-blocks or glass robed condos for as far as the eye can see. Somewhere you… Continue reading Escaping the city to Ontario’s spring wonderland
As much as I meant to write this post bang on the one-year mark, it’s actually been just over a year and a month since we moved to Toronto. Time is flying by so quickly I can’t quite keep up with it.

I don’t know about you, but I am glad January is out of the way. It always feels like such a dreary and long month, with little to look forward to. Despite the days still being long and somewhat chilly, February is feeling kind of hopeful. There’s the promise that spring is not too far… Continue reading Feel Good Feb
Oh blog. You have been painfully and horrendously neglected recently. I promise it’s not because I don’t want to write, because I really do, it’s because life has been somewhat ordinary as of recent. It’s because we haven’t been on any exciting adventures outside of Toronto, and I haven’t cooked up any innovative recipes. It’s… Continue reading Expat Diaries: 9 months away from home
