I can't believe that I haven't posted since Feb. 1st and then again I can!!! We have been so busy with visitors the past few weeks, it has been crazy!! Everyone is coming from the East in February it seems but it has been wonderful to see some old friends and family. Donika, Cam and their two kids were here and their 7 year old loves KIS.S - Fraser and Shawn had LOTS to talk about!!!! Oh and I had the best birthday party with lost of family, friends and chocolate. Thanks for the "great" photos V!! You are a nut!!!
My darling neice, the Divine Miss Em came from Toronto with my Mom for a week and we had a blast swimming, having afternoon tea, searching for faire circles, celebrating Chinese New year and swimming. Did I mention swimming, yes with a five year old who adores swimming and a beautiful pool down the road, we did alot of it!!! We are two peas in a pod, my neice and I. We both cried our hearts out when she left... Air Canad.a was no help. They cancelled both of their flights and made my sick Mommy wait in an airport with a sad and determined 5 year old for 4 1/2 hours, not to mention the 6 1/2 hour flight with no food!!!!! Horrible!!!! Luckily we sent lots of provisions in Em's bag and Mom's cell phone - we talked ALOT during their wait!!!
This past weekend was spent with my step-mom who flew into Vancouver last week for a conference and then tried to come over on the Island hopper (20 min flight) on Friday. She ended up 5 1/2 hours later, arriving by ferry and bus. No food vouchers for the ferry, no "so sorry". I don't think that I will ever fly Air Canad.a again. They cancelled her flight out here last week too and she almost missed her presentation at the conference - she had to do it in her running shoes and if you know Carolyn, that wasn't fun!! Horrible. BUT we had a great weekend and met up with her neice and our friend Jaqueline and her partner Claude for dinner last night. They have been out here on a holiday, enjoying our mild climate. It was great.
So, today I rest. Poor Shawn has to work but I am doing laundry, watching my BBC soaps and catching up on some reading. Back to work tomorrow!! Oh and the sun is shining, all is right with the world!!
