We finally made it over to Gabriola, after spending some time with Jess and having a day out in Stanley park getting lost at Beaver Lake and seeing my very first raccoon.

We spent three days with Ted and Jane on SaltSpring and then took off in their Dodge farm truck as they were heading out to Ireland for a couple of weeks. So we've got wheels which is really good and has helped get us around.

So here we are in Canada. I received notification, on my birthday, that my Permanent Residency had been approved and that I had to be in Vancouver on June 5th to attend an interview and bring all the original documentation that I'd previously sent as copies. I tried to re-schedule it but apparently it wasn't an option, and after waiting 18 months to get to this point I didn't think letting it go was the way forward. That gave us ten days to get organised!
