Catching you up....

Happy New Year? Haven't been on my blog for almost a year. Didn't really get into it! Hoping I will this time around. Better post a catch up. Went back to England in June 2012, planned for three weeks, had enough after two and wanted to come home. I regard Campbell River as home now. Great to see the motherland again and catch up with some family and friends. It just seems strange to be a visitor in a country where you lived for 40 odd years! Had a great summer. The weather was lovely and we spent lots of time outside in the garden. We visited Cortes Island in the summer for the first time. Really Beautiful. In the fall we tackled the very ambitious task of building a new carport, with what I can say very proudly lots of sucess. Mark was so motivated he then went on to complete a new wood shed too! Then in November went for our annual getaway to Hornby, another beautiful island. Christmas came and went. Mark was not in the best of moods. The highlight of the holiday was Skyping (I am so tech savvy...NOT!)with my older brother in Perth Australia (visiting my Niece and her partner who moved there in September. 2013 arrived in a very quiet way then off we went to Sooke for Marks birthday. We stayed at a resort called "Point No Point", which is well worth a Google. Beautiful 40 acre property overlooking the Juan de Fuca straight. Well worth a visit. Hiking, good food, Scrabble and a hot tub....excellent. Had a week off in February and tackled building a new garden. I used the planks from the old car port to build raised beds at the bottom of the garden. Much better position as it gets lots of sun. The yard is coming along but we have had to do quite a lot of landscaping, which takes time! Now approaching Easter again and we are looking forward to a return trip to Vegas. Caught up now. Must do this more regularly. Simon
