Its been a while since I have written.. suddenly we crossed the two year mark! The house is better.. we have a wood stove and attic insulation and some actual furniture. The garden is looking better as it grows out so we are staying for another year anyway.
I don’t know that my Irish is much better but its slowly sinking in. I don’t miss the US at all.. but miss aspects of Canada, though not the obnoxious Harper conservative government. I do like it here but it will take a while longer to really fit in..
